PERFORMANCE SPACE PRESENTS
THE OPERA PROJECT INC.
From soft whimpers to stormy crescendos, cast yourself adrift in this romantic, gripping undertaking from the vanguard of Australian theatre.
Celebrating an enduring connection with Performance Space’s 30 year history, Nigel Kellaway unites with photographer and long term associate Heidrun Löhr in Brief Synopsis – an entrancing mix of dramatic intrigue, sumptuous music, and the cool allure of France’s filmic Nouvelle Vague.
Set within a specially commissioned world of animated photography, Brief Synopsisplaces Kellaway, Katia Molino and David Buckley centre-stage, guiding audiences through an arresting narrative where a beautiful naked woman, ‘of a certain age’, brutally stabs a young man to death…
Performed with a virtuosic ensemble of three celli, double bass and piano that evokes classical music’s timeless greats (Strauss, Beethoven, Bach, Mozart), Brief Synopsis re-sculpts contemporary theatre into a kinetic spectacle of cinematic proportions – a watershed moment for Performance Space, The opera Project and You’re History
Created by: Nigel Kellaway, Katia Molino, David Buckley, Heidrun Löhr, Richard Montgomery, Steve Meyer, Laura Moore, Catherine Upex, Ashley Kurrle, Benjamin Au, Clytie Smith, Hans Bildstein
Produced by: The opera Project Inc. & Performance Space
