Join via Zoom: https://bard.zoom.us/j/98206933510
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm EST/GMT-5
Renowned theater, opera, and festival director Peter Sellars is currently creating a digital project at the Fisher Center. “This body is so impermanent….” is a setting of a fragment from the Vimalakirti Sutra, a first-century Buddhist text that understands illness as a path of spiritual awakening. Peter is collaborating remotely with South Indian singer Ganavya Doraiswamy, dancer Michael Schumacher, and calligrapher Wang Dongling to create a film made in real time, to be released early in 2021 and distributed around the world. Peter will introduce this project, and speak about his vision for theater in the 21st century, and his remarkable and iconoclastic career.
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm EST/GMT-5
