A body floats through a synthetic landfill beneath a suspended cello. A Mozart piano concerto slows down to the point of disintegration. Incantations are whispered and sung. Traces on a wall generate cavernous sounds of a world succumbing to its own collapse. There is no pianist.

Both a gutted concert and a living installation, "concerto" stems from an intermittent decade-long collaboration between writer Olivia Tapiero and choreographer Charlie Prince. The two artists become at once technicians, performers, and witnesses. Their gestures unfold in a suspended time, giving way to a profound meditation on the cost of grace, and what it means to mourn the world as the world mourns itself.
