TO SURVIVE THE APOCALYPSE" is an opera/story about the
tale of Burning Man, a real-life anarchist tale, a real life-cultural-phenomenon,
which grows bigger despite inevitable compromises. The growth
becomes the metaphor for entropy, as well as grand success.
The story of a glorious dichotomy. No one can argue Burning
Man's ability, as a phenomenon, to catalyze personal vision
from each and every participant, or how it is inherently un-anarchistic
and unpunk to require permits for every fire...The festival's
success and failure are living in its very essence, and so...This
makes for wonderful theater. "How To Survive the Apocalypse"
is about this question: what do you do when the people come,
when the cops come, when the Man himself comes to get a piece,
and when the myriad of interpretations of "the vision"
It's fun to play with as you'll
see. Hopefully we capture the essence of the festival culture
even in this short demo.
