Holoscenes: Performance Art Installation About Climate Change (VIDEO)

Holoscenes by Lars Jan is an aquarium-like sculpture in which performers execute everyday activities such as reading a newspaper while having to adapt to the tank filling and draining repeatedly. Lars Jan was inspired by a photo made by the photojournalist Daniel Berehulak during the widespread flooding in Pakistan in 2010. Lars Jan is the Artistic Director of the performance and art lab Early Morning Opera. With his performance art installation he wants to raise awareness about the dangers of climate change. Holoscenes premiered during the Nuit Blanche Festival in Toronto in October 2014. The final US presentation before Holoscenes heads abroad was hosted by MDC Live Arts at the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus during Art Basel in Miami Beach from December 2nd to 5th.
