Pink Sun

Presented by Ethos in association with VORTEX Repertory Company


Ethos presents Pink Sun, the world premiere event embracing mythology and cybergnostics. Pink Sun is a dynamic musical event with cybernetic movement, extraordinary objects, pink vinyl, lush lighting, pulsing beats, and lyrical original songs. Transport to another reality to experience the conflicts of Siren and Sorcerer, Olo and King Muscle.

Chad Salvata, an award-winning Austin composer, wrote the music and lyrics for Pink Sun. He returns to The VORTEX stage as a performer for the first time since 2002. Pink Sun also stars VORTEX award-winning performer, Melissa Vogt. Ethos veterans and award-winning musicians Sergio R. Samayoa (guitar) and JoBeth Henderson (drums) compliment an already lavish recorded score by Salvata.
