Alive: a durational lucid opera is a lab + performance series conceived and co-facilitated by Emma Howes & Justin Kennedy researching the experience and analysis of trance forms as well as its translatability into live performance, namely taking the form of lucid (sci-fi) opera.  Alive plunges without hierarchy into various trance states and operatic voice practices. The laboratory addresses the challenges of interpreting transcendental experience into live performance and results in a durational lucid opera over the course of two evenings.
