A DRONE OPERA

CARRIAGEWORKS AND EXPERIMENTA PRESENT

A DRONE OPERA

BY MATTHEW SLEETH

Matthew Sleeth presents a cinematic and poetic expression of the mythic abstraction of unmanned flight, the new reality of constant surveillance and our love affair with technology. Loosely structured around the myth of Icarus, fragments of Ovid’s ‘The Fall of Icarus’ are sung throughout the work to drive a narrative of desire, fear and destruction.

Produced by Kate Richards
Composed by Susan Frykberg
