WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Sound of the Sun is a theatrical installation by visual artist/director Arthur Maximillian Adair. It is a minimalist production of sight and sound performed without the use of any formal language by nine actors, nine dancers, eight musicians, five vocalists, five costume designers, and five visual artists. It is inspired by an Ancient Aztec Myth that tells the story of a dark sun who has imprisoned the artists of the world, and a sympathetic moon who calls upon the wind to help free them. The story is enhanced upon by other World Mythologies concerning creation, such as the Myan Prophecy of the White Buffalo, The Garden of Eden, and the Discovery of Thebes. The structure of the installation is informed by elements of ritual and storytelling.
