A hybrid show blending dance and opera, ‘Quicksand’ tells the story of a spy who voyages abroad to a foreign dictatorship with his wife. The opera combines the talents of two major figures in the American live arts scene, with music and libretto by Robert Ashley and choreography from Steve Paxton. The exhilarating production, which comes complete with an electric live orchestra and a particularly impressive light show, will be performed at Paris’s Théâtre des Abbesses from September 21-24 2016.
