Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, T.1912

The "T" in this "site-specific staged audience experience" refers to RMS Titanic, while the "1912" marks year the supposedly unsinkable supership met its watery end. As for the night of this performance, it comes exactly 99 years to the day after the maritime tragedy-turned-legend. The core of the evening will be a performance by the Wordless Music Orchestra of Gavin Bryars's symphonic piece, The Sinking of the Titanic, first performed in London in 1972. As the piece progresses, audience members in the Gugg's rotunda will be asked to move along the ramps in accordance with the shifts made by Titanic's passengers as the great ocean liner began to sink. For swells wishing to travel first-class, the museum is also offering dinner-and-cocktails-included packages for $350 and $200. All aboard who are going aboard!
