“Triptych (Eyes of One on Another)”

March 5

As part of the Green Umbrella concert series, the LA Phil New Music Group stages Bryce Dessner’s evening-length work, “Triptych (Eyes of One on Another).” The piece combines the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe with a libretto by Korde Arrington Tuttle and a performance by Roomful of Teeth.

21CM Takeaway: Dessner’s work is the first theatrical performance that the estate of Robert Mapplethorpe has allowed to make use of the famous photographer’s imagery. Today, Mapplethorpe’s images and their invitation to reflect on societal binaries – like black/white, man/woman and gay/straight – are as powerful as at their debuts more than 30 years ago.
