Enter the darkness in search of something beautiful\, transcendent. But be very careful what you need to know… \nDrawing on the complicated mythologies of the surrealist writer William S. Burroughs (Naked Lunch)\, Black Lodge uses dance\, industrial rock\, classical string quartet\, and opera to take viewers through a Lynchian psychological escape room. \nSet in a nightmarish Bardo\, a place between death and rebirth\, a tormented writer faces down demons of his own making. Forced to confront the darkest moment in his life\, he mines fractured and repressed memories for a way out. A woman is at the center of all the writer’s afterlife encounters. She is the subject of his life’s greatest regret\, and she materializes everywhere in this Otherworld. The writer cannot detach any thoughts of his life from her.  \nPart film screening and part industrial rock opera concert\, this world premiere event features glam opera band Timur & the Dime Museum alongside musicians from the Opera Philadelphia Orchestra. \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n “A Twin Peaks-inspired musical theater piece”\n—LA Times \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Credits\nCOMPOSER: David T.
