About I Swallowed a Moon Made of Iron
Chinese poet Xu Lizhi writes about his life making electronic parts on an assembly line in a factory in Shenzhen, China. Powerful, haunting and gut-wrenching, Xu's words give voice to millions of migrant workers around the globe whose existence is often forgotten. The world premiere of this song cycle by the composer of Mr. Shi and His Lover and Picnic in the Cemetery pays tribute to the life of Xu Lizhi and countless others whose unseen struggles provide the amenities of our digital lives.
