Concert: All Our Lives opera premiere
- Mon 12 Jun 2017
- 8:00 pm
All Our Lives presents a thirty-minute-long theatrical chamber operetta, and satirical exploration of techno-paranoia.
Percy Hearne’s piece follows the emotional decline that accompanies the realization of addiction, mimicking the generation growing up with technology today that coined phrases such as, ‘OMG, I wish I was dead’, and taking a satirical look at the psyche of the Instagram ‘over-user’.
The music of the piece shadows the emotions by travelling from traditional to electronic, sparse to dense, consonant to dissonant. This raw visual performance attempts to resonate with all those who have caught themselves needlessly scrolling through their phone and hopes to scare those who still see these technologies as alien.
Also featuring Juliet The Moon by P.D.Rousiamanis, originally composed as a live sound installation for the reading room of Manchester Central Library. The work explores themes of loss and intimacy through the letters of Franck Merck and Hope Square.
Tickets available on the door.
