Post:Ballet + The Living Earth Show Co-Present:

Lyra

A concert dance and contemporary classical music performance experience featuring acclaimed Bay Area composer Samuel Adams, choreographer Vanessa Thiessen, and director Robert Dekkers. Together with The Living Earth Show, Post: and the collaborating artists are creating an evening-length work that uses the story of Orpheus and Eurydice from classical mythology as a jumping point for an introspective exploration of the modern day human condition.

Lyra will premiere at The Midway in July 2020 with collaborative input from acclaimed Bay Area artists working in visual design, culinary art, and fashion. The creative material for Lyra will be built throughout 2019. Catch work-in-progress showings at our Post:Workshop Sharing (August 2, 2019 @ Dance Mission Theater), Sneak Peek (July 17, 2019 @ BAMPFA), and P:B Jam (September 26, 2019), and follow this collaboration by clicking below:
