Ticket sale information to follow
Step into a sunny day by the sea. This theatrical installation stunned audiences at the 2019 Venice Biennale, earning its all-female creative team the coveted Golden Lion. The Hammer, MOCA, and CAP UCLA present Sun & Sea’s Los Angeles premiere, transforming The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA with 13 vocalists and 25 tons of sand. Sunbathing characters offer up a range of seductive harmonies and melodic stories that glide between the mundane, the sinister, and the surreal. From the sprawling tapestry of their lives emerges a piercing exploration of the relationship between people and our planet, captured in one afternoon on a crowded beach.
