Revisit Lars Jan’s Holoscenes, a beautifully captivating durational performance-installation that embodies the impact of climate change. Presented in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development and Al Burda, a platform for Islamic arts and culture.
Holoscenes is a visceral, cross-disciplinary project born out of the widely-shared concern that our troubled relationship to water will become a central issue of the 21st century. The project directly connects the everyday actions of individuals to global climate change, while contemplating the evolution of our capacities for empathy and long-term thinking.
In the present day, it takes on new and unexpected metaphorical power. Midway through the durational 4 ½ performance installation, join director Lars Jan and members of the company for a live online Q&A.
