One-day exclusive performance on Monday February 11, 2013, 6-9pm at Lu Magnus Gallery, 55 Hester Street.
Following a postponement due to Hurricane Sandy, The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., the University of Virginia (U.Va.) OpenGrounds in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Lu Magnus are pleased to announce the U.S. East Coast reprise of the award-winning telematic opera Auksalaq, created by Matthew Burtner and Scott Deal. Performance features the EcoSono Ensemble as well as other performers interacting with audiences through telematic technology. Audience members are invited to bring their laptops, tablets, and smart phones to the performance to participate in the opera narrative. An interactive audience-participation software called NOMADS, available on iPhones, iPads, and Androids, will enable engagement with the performance in real-time across all the stages. Audience members are encouraged to attend the concerts with their mobile devices in order to participate.
