FORGOTTEN AND NOW THE COMING THING performance installation / site specific opera
Forgotten and Now the Coming Thing is a site-specific, dreamscape opera that takes its name from recurring phrases in Esta Nesbitt’s fashion illustrations. These phrases, “And Now...,” “And Again…,” and “The Coming Thing…” resonate beyond the world of fashion, into timeless questions of universal significance. C. Tara & David Gladden use Nesbitt’s diverse body of work as inspiration, creating a performance that combines live sound, live-feed cameras, video projections, and ritual actions.
Performed at Space 2640 in Baltimore as part of Everyman as Anyman, a night of Cinematic Performance highlighting works inspired by Esta Nesbitt, curated by Kristen Anchor.
