The LAB is pleased to host Wunderkabinet, an experimental opera and media installation developed by composer/sound artist Pamela Z in collaboration with cellist/composer Matthew Brubeck and media artist Christina McPhee. The production is inspired by and based on the exhibition materials displayed at the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles, founded and directed by artist David Wilson. The museum showcases the private galleries in which collectors of rarities would often display their treasures before the advent of public museums of natural history. In this enchanting performance, Ms. Z explores these peculiar worlds and the magic that occurs when the boundary between reality and imagination is blurred. Wunderkabinet will represent Ms. Z's most thematically focused work to date. Don't miss it.
