BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH: The Work and Music of Yoko Ono
Fri / Mar 22, 2019 - 8:00PM
Throughout this exceptional evening at Walt Disney Concert Hall, both Ono’s art and music will be performed by an ensemble of special guests in a concert-length celebration of her 60-plus-year career.
About this Performance
Yoko Ono is one of the most influential artistic figures of the 20th century. Her works as both a performance artist and a musician have not only helped to shape both media in the ensuing years, but have also had wider reverberations in society at large. Her work is conceptually bold and politically confrontational, but it’s delivered to her audience with a lyrical touch – one informed by her dedication to peace and spirituality – giving it a great sense of warmth and humanity.
BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH takes its name from Ono’s Dance Piece X, a Fluxus score that commands the performer to
and move between
and the Sky.”
