Tonights show welcomes multi-instrumentalist, harpist and vocalist, Elizabeth Clark, who will be talking about their upcoming project, “Seeds Under Nuclear Winter: An Earth Opera”, which is a recreation of spiritual visions, dreams, and stories through world and sacred music, moving visual art, dance, storytelling, and light experiments, shared within an immersive and multi-sensory community experience. The interview starts at about 24 minutes into the program
The Earth Opera takes place in a post-apocalyptic atmosphere, and centers around rebirth, finding light and beauty in the darkest times, and our deep connection with all living things, our planet, and with each other. Orchestrated for harps, ethereal choral voices, South American/Andean instruments, Indonesian gamelan, chamber strings, droning harmoniums, dulcimer, bells, piano, and an occasional tuba, the ‘Earth Opera’ steps into otherworldly realms and unfolds upon a non-linear and timeless path, similar to the way we dream.
Excerpts and entire scenes from “Seeds Under Nuclear Winter: An Earth Opera” will be premiered by a diverse Hudson Valley community of world musicians, artists, dancers, actors, and choreographers in the Widow Jane Mine on August 28-29th, 2021 at 3pm.
