    from William Cusick / Added

    8 out of 10! "By boldly mashing live action with motion graphics animation, Cusick establishes a universe that falls somewhere between the hyper-real and the unreal." - Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit "Have you ever wondered what would happen if Gregory Crewdson, Sam Shepard, and Cory McAbee took mescaline at a roadside motel and got freaky with a video camera?" - Michael Tully, Hammer to Nail "A fever dream of a road movie!" -366 Weird Movies Official Website - www.welcometonowherefilm.com/ IMDB Page - imdb.com/title/tt2231681

    • ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) David Lang: the whisper opera


      from MCA Chicago / Added

      2,492 Plays / / 0 Comments

      May 30–Jun 2, 2013 at the MCA Stage Featuring a world-premiere chamber opera by David Lang, commissioned by ICE with Tony Arnold as solo soprano, this one-of-a-kind work is performed with the musicians, singer, and audience enclosed in an intimate, onstage set. Composed for flute, clarinet, percussion, cello, and solo soprano, the music and the environment work together to convey themes of secrets, and the tension between what we hide and what we choose to reveal. "the whisper opera" (2013) is inspired in part by Lang’s visits to rural Italy, where he was surprised to experience the powerful intimacy of small opera houses. Jim Findlay directs the work and creates the particular stage design needed for the intimate setting of "the whisper opera." Findlay is an influential and provocative force as a designer and director in New York’s experimental theater world, including collaborations with The Wooster Group.
