ALL TIME STOP NOW is an experimental opera with multichannel video, dance, body-based sculpture, and original music. The project grew out of recorded conversations between Anna Luisa Petrisko and her best friend, who was living in a Buddhist monastery in Myanmar during the height of the COVID-19 global pandemic. ALL TIME STOP NOW creates space to process the uncertainty, grief, and restlessness we will undoubtedly continue to need. It is a contemplation on stillness, listening, impermanence, kinship, and the spaciousness of time.
Anna Luisa Petrisko is an interdisciplinary artist working in experimental opera, video art, body-based sculpture, and immersive media. Her work explores future and ancient ideas at a non-linear tempo, creating built environments that are as much invested in the sacred as they are in technological speculation. Collaborating with many artists, she sees shared work as a way to form relationships and cultural communion.
She has exhibited and performed at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), Hammer Museum, REDCAT, LACMA, Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and The Music Center. She is a MAP Fund recipient and has been an artist-in-residence at Yaddo, Coaxial Arts Foundation, and Echo Park Film Center. As a faculty member in the Art, Media, and Design department at California State University San Marcos, she teaches courses in Video Art and Sound Design.
