It’s a three-way made in arts heaven: beloved indie icons Yo La Tengo, Academy Award–nominated documentary director Sam Green, and inventor extraordinaire R. Buckminster Fuller (pictured), all joining forces for an early launch of the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival.
The just-announced, one-night-only performance at the Vogue Theatre doesn’t happen till November 12, but we wanted to tell you now because tickets go on sale September 15 via northerntickets.com/. The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller is a “live documentary” created and narrated by Green and accompanied by Yo La Tengo on-stage. Through film, words, and music, together they explore the contributions and philosophies of the late Fuller, a man best known for creating the geodesic dome (hello, Science World), but who also pushed design, architecture, and engineering to improve human lives. The event, coproduced with CDm2 Lightworks, will also include announcements of the lineup for the PuSh fest in January and February.
