From the press release:

REDCAT Theater, downtown center for contemporary arts, presents the world premiere of Timur and the Dime Museum’s COLLAPSE, a post-ecological requiem from March 27–29, 2014 at 8:30 PM. Composed by Daniel Corral and produced by Beth Morrison Projects, COLLAPSE is a vividly sardonic show with interactive visuals and satiric songs about the environmental catastrophes caused by humans.

Envisioned as a theatrical requiem, different stories are refracted through the hauntingly eclectic sound of the four-member band through accordion/keys, bass, guitar and drums. The vibrant voice of the Kazakh-American tenor TIMUR, playing the role of Moloch, a God of human sacrifice, brings urgent dramatic figuration to laments of environmental degradation past, present and future. Composer Corral’s approach to COLLAPSE focuses on reimagining the traditional requiem form into a band-driven song cycle for the 21st century.

Live-mixed projections by the award-winning video artist Jesse Gilbert (World Technology Network fellow), and costumes of the LA fashion designer Victor Wilde of the Bohemian Society (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 2014), will further create a raucous portrait of the human-made impact on the planet.

Following the world-premiere at REDCAT, Collapse will travel to Miami Light Project and Operadagen Festival in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
