Nothing's really easy about the end of the world
The world is on fire and drowning, water level choking, heat stifling. Do we resist it and dig underground? Or ease into it, burning up from the inside like the dinosaurs? In this work the ritualizing of the mundane, hysterical laughter, hypnotic song, and the ways in which we connect with each other renders an opera. Trotter, along with Annie Gilbert and other collaborators, utilize electro-acoustic voice, movement and video to situate us in the chaos and comforts of a dying planet.
