Staging

Film Performance is a new opera exploring the intrinsic physicality of musical performance and the ways in which we interacted with cameras over the pandemic. A musical response to the short-film ‘Film’ (a 1965 collaboration between Samuel Beckett and Buster Keaton), microphones and cameras are placed on stage to create sounds and a film projection in real time. Daily objects featured in ‘Film’ are brought to the stage and turned into sound-making devices. A series of solos, each monologue focuses on a specific combination of objects featured in the short-film, from a newspaper and a hat to a fish tank and a bird cage, combining the sounds produced with these objects with vocal, instrumental and electroacoustic sounds.
