River of Fundament – Movie Premiere

In 2010, I performed in Matthew Barney’s KHU, a large scale site specific performance in various parts of Detroit, along with members of the Detroit Symphony, New Music Detroit, and faculty from the University of Michigan.  The operatic performance is based upon the myths of Osiris and Isis as well as Norman Mailer’s novel Ancient Evenings.

Footage from the KHU performance will appear in Barney’s newest film, River Of Fundament. The film will premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in February 2014 with subsequent showings in the UK and Australia.
