Rolex fellow Pauchi Sasaki will premiere ARTEMIS: Fountain, a Rolex Arts Festival commission, at the Dancing Fountains, at the Canal of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. The composer-performer will be joined by 30 members of the acclaimed Greek choir CHÓRES in this brief, celebratory outdoor performance, planned as a brief excerpt of her digital opera, in which the illuminated fountains of the Agora will be choreographed to move with the music.
