TENTH INTERVENTION presents the avant-duo Trystero, in a performance of Robert Ashley's "Perfect Lives -- The Park." They are joined by guest artists Hannis Brown (Hotel Elefant, LOBE), Diane Skerbec (Chris Ferris & Dancers), and AmmoCake.

Originally with special permission from composer Robert Ashley, comes a new version of "Perfect Lives -- The Park" by Trystero, the avant-duo of composer-performers David Kulma and Dorian Wallace. This made-for-television opera has in recent years experienced a renaissance of new interpretations, notably Vidas Perfectas and Varispeed's Perfect Lives Manhattan. In this reimagining, Trystero will present an improvisational show augmenting their duo with fellow musicians from AmmoCake, guitarist Hannis Brown, and dancer Diane Skerbec. Trystero performs in Manhattan following a series of performances this season in the Midwest and NYC venues including Capital University, Interlochen Center for the Arts, and SOMETHIN' Jazz Club.
