Unidentified Subject: An Operetta in One Act

Coming to the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival 2021: Interdisciplinary Arts Collective presents Unidentified Subject, an operetta in one act. - Inspired by the works of Roberto Bolaño, Sophocles, Richard Strauss, and Don Boyd, UNSUB is an experimental foray into the archive – living and past, personal and communal. Through movement, sound, and light, the opera explores what it means to witness, what it means to wait, and what it means to navigate exile, power, violence, and fate. “Sometimes she felt like Elektra, daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, wandering in disguise through Mycenae, the killer mingling with the plebes, the masses, the killer whose mind no one understands, not even the FBI special agents or the charitable people who dropped coins in her hands.” (Bolaño)

Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival July 31, 6:00pm, August 6, 9:00pm, August 8, 4:30pm
