Based on actual 18th-century texts, Anatomy Theater follows the progression of an English murderess: from confession to execution and, ultimately, public dissection before a paying audience of fascinated onlookers. Anatomy Theater conjures a time when “specialists” traveled from town to town in pre-modern Europe, conducting public dissections of the corpses of executed criminals, seeking evidence of moral corruption in the interior of the human body. Written by Pulitzer Prize–winning and Oscar-nominated composer David Lang and world-renowned visual artist Mark Dion, Anatomy Theater is a tuneful and grisly theatrical event. Performances will take place at REDCAT Theater at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, beginning at 8pm.

Grab tickets to the final performance on Monday, June 20 and you can attend a special closing night party sponsored by Time Out Los Angeles!
