Walker Art Center

“A sound and music event that is simultaneously extraordinarily, mesmerically beautiful and also so radically disorientating that afterwards you feel as if the world has tilted to one side.” —Arts Desk

Eyes open and jaws drop during this state-of-the-art, immersive digital and live performance experience, the newest work by renowned electronic music/visual artist Ryoji Ikeda.

Using a spectacular combination of synchronized video screens, real-time content feeds, digital sound sculptures, and—for the first time in Ikeda’s work—human performers, superposition explores the conceptual world opened up by quantum theory. The powerful display of technology and viscerally thrilling music take the spectator inside indescribable structures at the very foundation of all life.

superposition is only coming to four U.S. cities: New York, Los Angeles, Ann Arbor, and Minneapolis. Ikeda’s last Minneapolis appearance was for Dumb Type Theater’s [OR], a Guthrie/Walker copresentation.
