Revisit Lars Jan’s Holoscenes, a beautifully captivating durational performance-installation that embodies the impact of climate change.

Presented in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Knowledge Development and Al Burda, a platform for Islamic arts and culture

Were you there? Holoscenes It is a visceral, cross-disciplinary project born out of the widely-shared concern that our troubled relationship to water will become a central issue of the 21st century. The project directly connects the everyday actions of individuals to global climate change, while contemplating the evolution of our capacities for empathy and long-term thinking. In the present day, it takes on new and unexpected metaphorical power. Midway through the durational 4 ½ performance installation, join director Lars Jan and members of the company for a live online Q&A.

Revisit this highlight from The Arts Center’s archives, filmed at NYU Abu Dhabi in its Middle East Premiere on November 16, 2016. Bridge the social distance, join the community online.
