excerpts from a live installation in Location One, NYC called "Lucretia"
The piece extracts various elements of the opera "The Rape of Lucretia" by Benjamin Britten; the singers and orchestra, the narrative, and the operatic process itself, and deconstructs and examines them devoid of their original context.
Lucretia centers around a room made of fishing wire, illuminated by naked light bulbs. Outside the room, several monitors are placed at varying heights. They reference the whirring and clicking of the loom, the sewing machine, cogs and connectors, the telephone switchboard, the spectrum of beeps and tones that provide the soundtrack to modern technology and women’s connection and interaction with them. The women in the space operate in infinite detail; they become agents of change and controllers of information.
