CULTUREMART 2013: Artaud in the Black Lodge, New York, NY


Artaud in the Black Lodge is a contemporary work of opera-theatre by David T. Little, with a libretto by poet Anne Waldman, exploring the imagined psychic connections between Antonin Artaud, William S. Burroughs and David Lynch. Existing in a Bardo-like place where dreams and reality intersect and the individual is confronted by demons of their own making, it is a work about the suspension of time, communication across realms, and the altering of sublunary experience.

This is a libretto reading only. FREE to the public.

Location: HERE: 145 6th Avenue; New York, NY 10013

Artistic Director: Kristin Marting
Composer: David T. Little
Librettist: Anne Waldman
Readers: Anne Waldman, Bob Holman, Nicole Peyrafitte
