The intrepid International Contemporary Ensemble presents the North American premiere of Thorvaldsdottir’s chamber opera, in which a trilogy of lost voices struggles to find its way back to its natural origin—the UR_—to mother Earth and to nature. Portrayed by a mezzo-soprano, an experimental vocalist, and a baritone, the trilogy looks to a central being (a light and sound sculpture which extends from floor to ceiling at the center of the room) for a way to navigate intangibility, insignificance, and the fractured relationship to its origin. The production affords a truly immersive experience, with the audience and performers sharing the same physical space, to foster a communal understanding of the UR_. No two listeners experience exactly the same thing, inviting each audience member to form their own understanding of our relationship with the earth.
