For this 50th anniversary tour with the Philip Glass Ensemble, the legendary composer returns to his score for the film Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance. The 1982 film is a visual poem that explores the disconnections between the natural world and our human-built environment. Screened with a live performance of the score by the Philip Glass Ensemble, the film is as relevant today as ever. It explores, in Glass’s words, “the collision of two different worlds — urban life and technology versus the environment.” It reflects Glass’s lifelong interest in environmental issues, and the danger of losing our connection to the natural world.
