Christopher Knowles is a multidisciplinary artist whose work has had a visible influence on American postmodern performance, poetry, and visual art since the 1970s. The Sundance Kid is Beautiful presents Knowles’s work in a staged performance environment that incorporates many of his diverse approaches, including dance, sculpture, music, and poetry from various periods of his long career. During the production’s residency, Christopher Knowles and the project team will develop the work’s design and staging alongside advanced undergraduate students in preparation for a final open rehearsal.
