Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Lars Jan: The Institute of Memory (TIMe) YBCA Forum Sat, May 19, 7:30PM Sun, May 20, 7:30PM See more at https://www.ybca.org/whats-on/transform-lars-jan Featuring archival wire-tap transcriptions, the missives of communist spies, and MRI brain scans, The Institute of Memory (TIMe) conjures a portrait of Lars Jan's enigmatic father -- a Cold War operative whose fascinating story prompts questions about privacy, memory, and fatherhood. Jan directs Early Morning Opera, a performance and art lab integrating emerging technologies, live audiences, and unclassifiable experience. TIMe follows two men who play with the past in the glow of a kinetic light sculpture signaling keystrokes from a hacked 50s typewriter. Composed of medical scans, X-rays, and laser scans of several actual environments where Jan spent time with his father as a child, the piece is both disturbingly abstract and uniquely personal. Part of: Transform Fest Spring 2018 May 09--20 2018 Transform, YBCA's new festival, celebrates the power of ideas through transformative performances. Each fall and spring, we will convene leading contemporary artists for a provocative showcase of dance, music, and theater that can only happen at YBCA. This spring, our festival is built around the question: "Where is our public imagination?" An international spectrum of performance from eclectic and progressive musical presentations (Black Women Rock!, DJ Spooky, Mark de Clive-Lowe), visually stunning dance (Capacitor, Printz Dance Project), and innovative, interdisciplinary theater driven works (Roger Guenveur Smith with Camp Santo, Okwui Okpokwasili, Lars Jan/Early Morning Opera).
