Event description

Description

Join us for two special preview performances of Looking at You, an immersive techno-noir operatic experience by Kamala Sankaram and Rob Handel that confronts the issue of privacy in our digitized society. Looking at You fuses Edward Snowden with Casablanca, driven by a dynamic score. Set inside a corporate headquarters and integrating data mined from the audience in real time, the experience lays bare urgent questions of our time.

KRISTIN MARTING, director
Kristin Marting has constructed 29 stage works, including original hybrids, opera and music theater, reimaginings of novels and short stories, and classic plays. She has directed over 19 works at HERE, where she serves as the founding artistic director.

KAMALA SANKARAM, composer
Kamala Sankaram has received commissions from Washington National Opera, Houston Grand Opera, HERE, Beth Morrison Projects, the PROTOTYPE Festival, Opera on Tap, Opera Memphis, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, among others.

ROB HANDEL, librettist and playwright
