Lars Jan | Early Morning Opera: The Institute of Memory (TIMe)

Lars Jan/Early Morning Opera: The Institute of Memory (TIMe)

"Artist Lars Jan has done that rare thing: created something that feels entirely new." —Los Angeles Magazine

“Mind-bendingly creative.” — Philadelphia City Paper

World Premiere

Co-presented with and produced by CalArts Center for New Performance

A multi-dimensional visual design sets the stage for award-winning director and media artist Lars Jan’s theatrical exploration of the blurring of short and long term memories, and how “remembering” is changing now and into the future. With two performers, high-tech 3D renderings, original music and a collage of found and composed text, TIMe traces the transformation of archives from physical to digital structures, and the corresponding evolution of national and personal remembering and privacy through the story of director Lars Jan’s father — an enigmatic Cold War operative and privacy-obsessed misanthrope.

TIMe was made possible with funding by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Theater Project, with lead funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation Fund/Forth Fund Project co-commissioned by REDCAT/ CalArts Center for New Performance in partnership with The Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art Boston and NPN. For more information, visit npnweb.orgcenterfornewperformance.orgTIMe is organized by as part of a program celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tadeusz Kantor.
