The experimental opera and theatrical installation Sun & Sand, which won a Golden Lion for Lithuania at the 2019 Venice Biennale, heads to the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA as part of a tour of the country.
Director and scenic designer Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė stages the piece—which deals elliptically with climate change, and features music by Lina Lapelytė and a libretto by Vaiva Grainytė—on a faux beach created with some 25 tons of sand; the cast includes 13 vocalists and 25 locals recruited to serve as extras.
The show is presented in a continuous loop for five hours; spectators, who watch the performance for one hour from a balcony above the playing space, are admitted in batches every half hour.
Sun & Sea tickets are sold out, but please check back for any tickets that may become available due to cancelations. Due to limited capacity, there will not be a standby line at the venue.
