Created by Randall Packer, A Season in Hell (2010) is a historical portrait of political and social turmoil in the post-9/11 era, a hallucinatory spectacle of America as a vision of Hell. The work is a collaboration with tenor Charles Lane, director Melissa Weaver, and designer Gregory Kuhn. A Season in Hell chronicles an artist’s journey through the Underworld of America as told by his doppelgänger, the rogue government official, Secretary-at-Large of the US Department of Art & Technology (USDAT). The forerunner of A Season in Hell was the creation of USDAT in 2001, which gave sociopolitical voice to the artist in times of crisis. A Season in Hell is a ground-breaking multimedia performance work that integrates a complex electronic musical score and vocal performance with multiple forms of digital media, video projection, surround-sound, objects, and storytelling to fuse live performance, installation, and sculpture into an otherworldly theatrical experience.
