Ravenna Festival • Koyaanisqatsi live

Viale Europa, 1 -
Jun 3, 2020

For the first time, and on Italian preview, The Philip Glass Ensemble will be kicking off the 31st edition of Ravenna Festival on 3 June

Pioneer of minimalist and experimental music, The Philip Glass Ensemble will be hitting the spotlight of the arena Pala de Andrè, performing the soundtracks of  ‘Koyaanisqatsi’, a film with no plot nor dialogues that takes you on a journey – from nature to human intervention, and the consquent chaotic way of living, that finds in its minimalist, innovative and experimental soundtrack an even deeper understanding.

Homage to Philip Glass on Italian preview
