Oscillating between viewer and participant, four audience members embark on an intimate journey inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities and Jorge Luis Borges’ short story “The Garden of Forking Paths.” This immersive physical and aural experience leads audience via headset, on solo paths that intersect. Conceived and directed by Nichole Canuso, The Garden uses original music by Michael Kiley and James Sugg along with writing contributed by Jacki Sibblies Drury and Anna McDonald, to create a sprawling exploration of possibilities, executed on the smallest possible scale.
A.R.T. partners with the Harvard Art Museums as The Garden takes place in the stunning Adolphus Busch Hall, the former location of the Busch-Reisinger Museum. Founded in 1901 as the Germanic Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum is dedicated to the study of all modes and periods of art from central and northern Europe, with an emphasis on German-speaking countries. Adolphus Bush Hall houses the museum’s founding collection of plaster casts of medieval art and is the venue for concerts on its world-renowned Flentrop pipe organ. It serves as an extraordinary backdrop for The Garden.
