ABOUT

Los Angeles-based band Timur and the Dime Museum performs a glam-rock requiem for the natural world. Mixing trenchant commentary with arch theatrical flair, COLLAPSE features music by Dime Museum member and composer Daniel Corral—by turns grungy, poppy, and apocalyptic—alongside interactive projections from video artist Jesse Gilbert to consider the fate of a world shuttling from one man-made ecological disaster to the next. Kazakh-American tenor and protean frontman Timur Bekbosunov—whose shape-shifting personalities are lavishly costumed by fashion designer Victor Wilde—is the magnetically transgressive officiant of this perverse postmodern mass for a planet in crisis.
