14 - 26 MAY 2012
The Print Room and Opera Erratica present:
TOUJOURS ET PRÈS DE MOI
This visually haunting work tells a touching, fractured tale of absence and regret through moving music, startling images and visual wonder.
Intimate and arresting, Toujours et Près de Moi is a world premiere and the first UK production from critically acclaimed international performance company Opera Erratica. Live physical theatre, Victorian theatrical illusion and the latest video technology combine to create a dislocated performance space in which puppet-sized holograms interact with their live, life-sized selves. Meanwhile lush Renaissance madrigals by Carlo Gesualdo are mixed with startling contemporary vocal pieces by Salvatore Sciarrino, Christopher Fox and James Weeks, adding to the sense of past/present dislocation.
Toujours et Près de Moi promises audiences a challenging and haunting new theatrical experience exploring presence and absence, memory and loss, connection and separation.
