The Sundance Kid is Beautiful presents the work of Christopher Knowles, the multitalented poet, linguist, performer, actor and visual artist in a staged environment that incorporates many of his diverse approaches.

The sixty-minute solo work features Knowles performing multiple actions in different time and scale registers in concert with more than a dozen short texts, including The Sundance Kid is Beautiful, selections from his libretto for Wilson and Phillip Glass’s landmark opera Einstein on the Beach, and many others.

The Sundance Kid is Beautiful draws the audience into Knowles’s whimsical, witty, and dream-like world, thereby allowing viewers to engage with his compelling practice on its own mesmerizing terms.

“Christopher Knowles is an American original–sui generis. His genius has everything to do with his ability to make one re-think language through poetic configurations that are haunting, vivid, and real. He is an artist of the first magnitude.”
– Hilton Als, New Yorker Magazine

“Radiant…”
