Lucifer Landing II

Jonathan González
Performance, 65 minutes
2019

Lucifer Landing is a two-part series of works conceptualizing Blackness and the geopolitical, specifically post- anthropocentrism. Lucifer Landing II, presented in Abrons Arts Center’s Playhouse Theater, attempts to exhaust mechanisms of the ‘epic’ in human innovation and theatrical invention through the form of classical opera to fathom an end to idealizations of the ‘human’, and the possibility of living and dying well in this contemporary time.
