Safety tips for travel in the desert:

*Bring water and a hat and lots of sunscreen.

*Wear walking (hiking/closed toe) shoes and pants that cover your legs.

*Have a small jacket with you. It's been hot, but the wind picks up in the evening and it can get very chilly.

*You may wish to bring a folding chair.

*Keep an eye out for snakes and wildlife.

*Ants in your pants if you stand on their colony.

*No alcohol.

*No smoking or open flames.

*Please dispose of any litter properly, and respect the land.

Breaking boundaries of sound and space, John M. Kennedy’s avant-garde composition poetically mirrors the dark and unexpected realities of Sartre’s world.  Alicia Tycer’s libretto deconstructs the original linear narrative to reflect the multiplicity of space and time, while director Tanya Kane-Parry and members of her cutting-edge performance group, Opera del Espacio, create startling physical imagery, all supported by the Chamber Players of Los Angeles music ensemble. Students from the Department of Music, Theatre and Dance are participating in the development and workshop performances of this exciting new piece, working along side faculty and professional performing artists and designers, including famed international opera singer, Nicholas Isherwood; member of Urban Bush Women and Head of Dance at Cal Poly Pomona, Gayle Fekete; video designer E. Martin Gimenez (LA Opera, Cirque du Soliel, The Industry).

Performances: Thursday Jan 30, Friday Jan 31, and Sat Feb 1, 7:30 pm, State Playhouse.

Post-performance discussions to follow the performances.
