At the current rate of decline, the Asian Elephant will face extinction within the next twenty years. Inspired by a vision of dignity, grandeur, mystery, cross-species kinship that lies deep within all of us, Miranda Loud has launched development of a live performance called Elephantasia which will interweave original music for pipe organ and voice with video projection and dance for cathedral spaces. The artistic team is being assembled with a premiere date of 2013 in the pipeline.
