On April 8th Swiss Institute’s OFFSITE program will stage the fifth event of their Lunar Intervals series, Sahra Motalebi’s Lunar Interval V: Waning Gibbous. The program will present Flesh, Format 2 (from Directory of Portrayals), Motalebi’s open-form opera based on the exclusively digital relationship between her and her sister in Iran who has never met. The 45-minute vocal-only performance will continue her exploration of both operatic structures and the complex cultural and geographical narratives produced from a long-distance familial relationship.

As a part of the Lunar Intervals series, Swiss Institute will release an accompanying 7-inch record, and additionally, in 2019, the entirety of Directory of Portrayals’ libretto will be published as an experimental piece of auto-fiction.
