The Tin Man
Lauren Bon and The Metabolic Studio, 2009
30 minutes

In 1900, L. Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. In 1913, William Mulholland opened the Los Angeles Aqueduct with water brought in from Owens Valley.
In 2009, after 100 years of dust, the Owens Valley Glass and Water Citizens Metabolic Orchestra performed in the relic of the Pittsburg Plate Glass Factory.
This factory was used to mine the minerals left after the water was removed from the lake to allow the city of Los Angeles, 240 miles away to grow. After that industry ended, the factory became the laboratory of Dr. Selwyn McCabe, who used the space to develop a pediatric heart pump.  The performance brought people from Los Angeles together with people from the Owens Valley as audience for the Metabolic Orchestra’s cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.   The Tin Man regains his heart.  This nostalgic piece reminds us that there can be no rainbow without water.   
 

We look forward to seeing you all this weekend!
