THE MUSEUM OF LIFE AND DEATH 


Set in the post-human 26th-century, The Museum of Life and Death is a radical reconsideration of the medieval Play of Everyman.  Framed as a kind of post-human Masterpiece Theatre,  and hosted by a chipper cyborg named Virgil, The Museum mixes 3D animation, projected video, live action, buddhist sutras, and original music to consider essential questions of Life, Death -- and extinction -- in our own time.


“Indescribable, beyond the instant realization that it’s beautiful.”


-- Chris Potter, Ann Arbor News


The work was premiered by Milwaukee Dance Theatre in 2006, at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Milwaukee.
