DORIAN WOOD presents Color From God-lung (Larkwat 1254) at HUMAN RESOURCES
Color From God-lung (Larkwat 1254) is an endurance-based opera in which the cast members create an intense yet minimalist environment through the use of their bodies, and how they relate to each other. Created by artist Dorian Wood, the opera unfolds within the petrified carcass of a giant celestial elephant, one of thousands strewn across the earth, many years after mankind's demise.
The opera will be performed by Dorian Wood, Ricardo Bracho, Rafael Esparza, Aerie Shore, Geneva Skeen and Kari Svendsboe
This is a highly intense performance, with a duration of 1.5 hours.
No one under 18 will be admitted.
Performance begins at 9:00PM SHARP. Arrive early.
No one will be allowed entry after 9:00PM.
Artist Dorian Wood has held audiences captive on street corners, in concert halls and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, armed with a powerful, soul-rattling voice, and boasting a music aesthetic that marries troubadour balladry with the avant-garde. Dorian has performed at LACMA, UCLA, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), Highways Performance Space (Santa Monica), Pacific Design Center (West Hollywood), The Stone (New York City) and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco). His most recent live album, Brutus, was recorded at a church in London during his Spring 2010 European tour. He is currently working on his second full-length studio album, Rattle Rattle, to be released in November.
"[Wood] is armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon" - WNYC CULTURE
"Just in case you thought that Sufjan Stevens was the only arty, ambitious folkie out there, there's also the sweet-voiced Los Angeles singer/songwriter Mr. Wood." - VILLAGE VOICE
"The androgynous emotionality of Wood’s singing voice lends itself to the demanding theatricality of [his] lyrics, arrangements and production. The nakedness of a lover’s need and the wide-eyed madness that ensues when that need is not met twine around one another." - LA WEEKLY
