THEATER: Peter Handke's They Are Dying Out is an epic reflection on the psyche of the corporate world and how it infects the humanity of those who engage it. Business kingpin Hermann Quitt knows that it is challenging for him to live up to his own ideal image of life. Frustrated by this knowledge, he turns into an unethical monster who disregards his wife, breaks contracts, betrays and ruins his business associates, and leads him to commit the ultimate crime against himself. MFA Directing alum Chi-Wang Yang returns hom with this spellbinding German play, They Are Dying Out.

INSTITUTE: Students from CalArts bring items of clothing, books and other things they don't want to the lawn to dump it in a pile. Then they pick up whatever they want from the mass pile of stuff. I would take whatever is leftover from the pile to Goodwill.
REDCAT: For 60 years, Christian Wolff has been at the center of composing’s avant-garde, working alongside such figures as John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Cornelius Cardew. In these two nights of exceptional performances, Wolff pays tribute to fellow great Elliott Carter with a work played by the Formalist Quartet, followed by a world premiere of Nick Deyoe’s Lullaby 3, in the spirit of Wolff’s musical experimentation and featuring the Formalist Quartet with cellist Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick. A second don’t-miss evening of Wolff’s groundbreaking music is curated by renowned composer Michael Pisaro and includes the compelling and unique Changing The System (1974) and John Heartfield (2003), as well as the touching Trio V for James Tenney (2006), all heard for the first time on the West Coast.
