The Sundance Kid is Beautiful presents the work of Christopher Knowles, the multitalented poet, performer, and visual artist in a staged environment that incorporates many of his diverse approaches.

Knowles performs multiple actions in different time and scale registers in concert with more than a dozen short texts, including The Sundance Kid is Beautiful, selections from his libretto for Robert Wilson and Phillip Glass’s landmark opera Einstein on the Beach, and others. Knowles’s performance draws the audience into his whimsical, witty, and dream-like world, allowing viewers to engage with his compelling practice on its own mesmerizing terms.

This event is free and open to the public, with tickets only needed for entry and only available at the door.

Show Times
October 26 at 7 p.m. (followed by a talk with the artist)
