Elizabeth Cline has dedicated her career to supporting and advocating for interdisciplinary artists and artistic communities. For the past 16 years she has organized and produced performative and site responsive works across Los Angeles. Since 2014, Cline has served as executive director for The Industry, a Los Angeles-based experimental opera company founded by Yuval Sharon in 2010. Previously she was the assistant director at Machine Project, an arts nonprofit in Los Angeles founded by Mark Allen, and a curatorial associate at the Hammer Museum, where she organized artist’s projects in the Public Engagement Program.
As a librettist and director, her work explores consciousness through subjectivity and time. Her first opera, Tragedy on the Sea Nymph, starring an all-dog cast, premiered in 2010 at Machine Project (Los Angeles) and performed by the Calder Quartet. In 2012 it travelled to The Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), and later featured at the 2013 Biennial of the Americas (Denver), performed by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. In 2013 her chamber opera The Edge of Forever, inspired by the ending of the Mayan long count calendar, was performed by LA-based chamber music ensemble wild Up and conducted by Christopher Rountree, at The Philosophical Research Society (Los Angeles). A recording of The Edge of Forever was released on The Industry Records label in June 2016.
