WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The vocal stylings of mesmeric frontman Timur Bekbosunov join with haunting experimental chamber music and the stagecraft of post-punk cabaret in the world premiere of Collapse, an operatic song cycle composed as a requiem mass by Daniel Corral, who is also the ensemble's music director. Backed by a five-piece band (accordion/keys, guitar, bass and drums), classically trained Kazakh-born tenor Bekbosunov brings urgent dramatic figuration to Corral's laments of environmental degradation past, present and impending. Timur and the Dime Museum are accompanied by video projections created and live-mixed by artist Jesse Gilbert, with costumes designed by Victor Wilde of the Bohemian Society.
