The Yale Repertory Theatre’s “No Boundaries” performance series will kick off with the multimedia chamber opera “Refuse the Hour,” conceived by noted South African artist William Kentridge.

For the chamber opera, Kentridge (who wrote the libretto) joins forces with composer Philip Miller, choreographer Dada Masilo, and Harvard physicist Peter Galison to deliver a blend of art and performance. Sharing the stage with a menagerie of strange machines of his own invention, along with singers, dancers, and musicians, Kentridge conjures a profound exploration of the nature of time.
