The World Is Bigger Than You Think
On May 10 at the Clocktower Gallery, Egill Sæbjörnsson, Marcia Moraes, Lisa Lie, and Jeremy Woodruff presented a site-specific performance excerpted from their pop opera The World Is Bigger Than You Think. Developed as part of a residency at the Watermill Center, The World Is Bigger Than You Think explores issues of personal crisis and societal pressure as a general state of being. Moraes and Sæbjörnsson created a live recording for ARTonAIR.org of additional selections from their visual pop opera music developed during their Watermill residency. Joining them was Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator, MoMA PS1, to discuss their practice and this project.
