Sweet Land
Composer: Raven Chacon, Du Yun

Librettist: Aja Couchois Duncan, Douglas Kearney
Synopsis

Sweet Land, The Industry’s next major independent production, brings together two composer/librettist teams—Du Yun and Raven Chacon, Douglas Kearney and Aja Couchois Duncan—to create a multiperspectival opera exploring the grotesque myths of American identity, directed by Yuval Sharon. 

Sweet Land re-imagines narratives surrounding the founding of America and westward expansion in order to make visible the violence and erasure of American history. Think of it as a dystopian amusement park ride through the vortex of our country’s past, taking the audience through an experiential dismantling of our country’s dominant narrative of history.
