The Gray Center for Arts & Inquiry and California Institute of the Arts present FULL PINK MOON: Opera Povera in Quarantine, a livestream fundraising opera performance from composer Pauline Oliveros.

The event is a global fundraiser supporting musicians facing the COVID-19 pandemic, and coincides with Tuesday’s full moon, from 6pm – midnight Pacific Time. A “durational virtual opera featuring vocalists, instrumentalists, noise practitioners, and performers of all kinds,” some 250 performers from across the globe are expected to participate — yes, via Zoom — and livestreamed simultaneously via Facebook Live, YouTube, and Twitch.

FULL PINK MOON will feature a collective virtual performance by 250+ artists from around the world, in a sort of collaborative process of choices and alternation described by Sean Griffin as, “not a spectator’s opera, [but] rather, a vast participatory operatic landscape of moondrunk people in a fictional space of free expression and listening.”

This worldwide livestream event, 6pm – 12am Pacific, occurring overnight during the “pink” moon, is a fundraiser for the Equal Sound Corona Relief Fund.

Tuesday, April 7, 6pm – midnight Pacific Time. For more information, visit: seangriffin.org/full-pink-moon.
