“A transformative meditation on the current imbalance between humans and the wider world that supports them.” —Guardian

Philip Glass and his ensemble take the stage to perform a live score to the 1982 experimental masterpiece Koyaanisqatsi, a film at once unsettling and deeply calming, its images unbelievable yet familiar. Set to rapid motion shots of urban chaos and icebergs smashing meditatively into the sea, Glass’s score evokes the beauty of the beast. Epitomizing the overwhelming freedom of art, Koyaanisqatsi is catharsis to a culture captivated by progress at any cost.
