Ages is an operatic examination of the ages and stages of life. Set in the parkland lawn around a great cottonwood tree, audience, pedestrians and picnickers will gather to witness the overlapping beautiful and banal moments of life. Familiar figures in the Torn Space mythology will return, presenting the growing family of their multi-generational fictional society. In this time of seemingly ceaseless turmoil, take a moment to reflect on the year’s events in a venue like no other- the peaceful meadow beside the concrete ruins of Buffalo’s engineering masterpiece.
As the 10th site-specific ritual at Silo City, Ages is a benchmark in the Torn Space mythology and history. Join us for a celebration of the saga and to once again gather for a processing of our time and place in the world.
This performance is part of Torn Space’s INTERSECTION: Performance Series, which is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, along with the following lead sponsors: Cullen Foundation, Erie County, Ralph C.
