Written by Carl Hancock Rux
Music by Theo Bleckmann
Directed by Anne Bogart

Poet and performer Carl Hancock Rux (The Temptation of St. Anthony, 2004 Next Wave) recounts the life of German-Jewish art historian Carl Einstein—an influential scholar on African sculpture and Cubism who fled the Nazis—together with tales of genocide and personal genealogy in this magnetic evening of storytelling. With music composed and performed live by Theo Bleckmann (Out Cold/Zippo Songs, 2012 Next Wave), direction by SITI Company’s Anne Bogart (A Rite, 2013 Next Wave), and video by Onome Ekeh, The Exalted untangles knots of heritage, art, and atrocity to reconsider the price of freedom and self-preservation.
