Rain, A Lament for the Peoples of Chile

1976

Created for the Maple Sugar performance art collective in Toronto by David Rosenboom, William Winant, Juan Pablo Orrego, and George Manupelli.

A real-time visual and sonic tribute to those who struggled in the September 11th, 1973 overthrow of the democratic socialist government of Salvadore Allende in Chile. Elements include creation of indoor and outdoor images in time, sonic environments, and audio sine waves heard from sources whirled around in circles by a performer leading the audience from inside to outside.
