William Kentridge “Refuse the Hour”

EC members were blown away at BAM by the new chamber opera created by Princeton’s 2015 Belknap Visitor in the Humanities, the South African multimedia artist William Kentridge. Through an evening of pneumatic tubes, anthropomorphic bullhorns, backwards arias and more, Kentridge asked his audience, “Can we hold our breath against time?” His response: “Lla ta tnaem I tahw ton s’taht!”
