Music & Words: Improvised by the company
“We sing an old song,
Our memories united
Of our world that die-
The Mind journeys across the stars, a harmonious collective consciousness of peoples from a now-lost world. It sings to itself, far more than any individual could be – but, while reflecting on the past, its individual fragments emerge and try to remember what they once were. Drawn into memories of the crisis, the Mind begins to schism and crack.
An improvised opera and ritual, drawing on the audience’s experiences and stories to create a new collective Mind each night. Its world will be built and lost over the course of the evening.
The company previously performed The Perfect Opera at Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival in 2019.
Additional content for the broadcast:
The company will talk about how they’ve brought together tools from tabletop roleplaying games, sci-fi, Noh theatre and opera to create a show and (pandemic permitting) make a little show live onscreen based on the audience’s suggestions.
Live Broadcast: Thursday 17th September - 7:40pm
