Last Audience (Live Artery)
Yanira Castro/a canary torsi’s Last Audience premiered in the Live Arts fall 2019 season with a soldout run. The piece is a live laboratory for the communal work of what it means to conjure. Comprised of a set of unique scores written for each performance, the piece grapples with agency and manipulation, negotiating the individual and the collective inside a theatrical context. Drawing on language and themes from requiems and Greek classical tragedy on judgement and democratic formation, Last Audience moves inside the unstable space between the perfunctory and the transformative.
