The border between ambition and hard luck is a blind spot. We Are All Failing Them is a song cycle, performed live with film and objects, that engages in a sideways view of the curious and spectacular tragedy of the Donner Party. Drawing upon the languages of recital, film and staged séance, this evening-length entertainment asks: what gets left behind along the trail to the Promised Land?

The world premiere of this collaborative work by composer Robin Holcomb, filmmaker Britta Johnson and theatre artist Curtis Taylor features performances by Robin Holcomb (piano, voice), Peggy Lee (cello), Danny Barnes (voice, banjo) and Susie Kozawa (sound effects).
