Approximate running time: 1h 15m without intermission

The Pierre Boulez Saal becomes a laboratory for the “art of being human”: music of the 16th and 17th centuries, dance, and visual art come together in this interdisciplinary performance created specifically for this unique space. Laurence Dreyfus and his ensemble Phantasm, choreographer Sommer Ulrickson, and visual artist Alexander Polzin explore the revelatory potential that art––a genuinely human form of expression––holds for our own lives and for our interaction with others.
