Sweet Land


co-composed with Du Yun

Libretto by Aja Couchois Duncan and Douglas Kearney

Sweet Land (2020) is a Manifest Destiny opera that erases itself while weaving together several narratives simultaneously, opening with the arrival of settler-colonial visitors in the homelands of an Indigenous civilization. As the story unfolds, past scenes are left behind and erased, emulating the whitewashing of dissent against dominant historical narratives.
