Sawdust rises through the beams of carpenters lamps. An air of concentration and intensity pervades, cut through by the the whine of saw blades and the whack of hammers. Your eye is drawn to a shining Ouroboros, a snake eating it’s tail, taking on the form of a necklace, lying on a table in middle of a stage.
Also upon the stage, The Twilight Hours, perched over and against a tableau of a rock theatrical. Something that looks frighteningly like a hangman’s scaffolding looms behind, Chimes shadow at crazy angles and mirrors cast light wiggling across the room. The band members guide actors into positions and lead them through a script describing one character’s ascent into legend and another’s…
Wait! Don’t let me tell too much!!
We have been working away making this thing that we don’t even fully understand. It’s taking on a life of it’s own, guided by the craft of artists the likes of filmmaker, and director of all of Low’s videos, Phil Harder as well as Guggenheim Fellow and set designer, Chris Larson working hand in hand with Matt and John, Dave, Steve and Jacques, as well as a cast of actors: Dane Stauffer, John Catron and Lillian Noonan.
Together we are trying to summon forth something you have not seen before. Come see it this March.
