EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH

by Don Kent, with Robert Wilson & Philip Glass. 2014. 4 hours, 23 minutes.

In partnership with Beach Sessions Dance Series, we’re pleased to present a special screening of Einstein on the Beach, an opera in four acts moving through Einstein’s life, from steam engines to space travel. Originally created in 1976 by Robert Wilson and Philip Glass, this experimental piece breaks all theatrical rules of opera through its repetitive motives and rhythmic structures. Choreographed by Lucinda Childs with text by Christopher Knowles.

Beach Sessions Dance Series is a pioneering performance series in Rockaway Beach, Queens, NYC. Their mission is to commission, produce, and present site-responsive choreographic work on New York’s shoreline, creating ambitious new work that expands the boundaries of contemporary dance.
