The Four Fiscal Quarters at Machine Project, Los Angeles

Join Machine Project (Los Angeles) on Saturday, June 24th and Sunday June, 25th at 8:00pm for The Four Fiscal Quarters, an anti-capitalist opera that humanizes the cyclical nature of a corporate fiscal year.

Following a crisis in the form of a layoff of 35% of a company, four C-Level officers struggle to hold it together. What kind of identity re-calibration, restructuring, and asset management is required to keep the company productive and successful? What unseen forces gave rise to the layoffs and how will the humanity of its workforce be balanced with the need for efficient productivity?

Note: The opera’s language is mostly in English, though there is heavy usage of fiscal and corporate jargon. Some subtitles will be provided.
