Join us for an artistic mash up of old and new art forms.
Visual artist Chris Larson and composer Anthony Gatto join forces to bring the darkly humorous world of Flannery O'Connor's WISE BLOOD to life. Set in the post-industrial beauty of a 130-year-old factory turned art gallery, this immersive opera takes the audience on an intimate journey alongside the eccentric and captivating characters of this story. The audience is brought directly into, around and through large scale installation pieces, kinetic sculptures, projections, live music and performance.
Exhibit and set Installation takes place in April 2015 at The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The WISE BLOOD installation and sound design at The Soap Factory will be an on-going exhibit, open from May 9 to June 15, 2015 during regular exhibition hours. A free and open to the public opening reception will take place on May 9, 2015 from 7-11pm.
WISE BLOOD Performances take place June 2 -7 and June 11 - 14 at 8pm each evening. Get your tickets now at soapfactory.org
