Description

A work of experimental theater

performed live by Bellows and Brass
music and concept by Linda Bouchard
poems by Anne Carson

Bright and audacious, this multimedia music theater work by Canadian composer Linda Bouchard is based on poems by MacArthur genius Anne Carson from her collection Men in the Off Hours (2001)—notable for blending free verse with prose and reinventions of figures such as Lazarus, Sigmund Freud, Virginia Woolf and Hokusai.

Transposing the intellectual power and emotional energy of Carson’s poetry to the stage, Bouchard’s electronic score incorporates live voice, trumpet, trombone, accordion and piano—parts robustly performed by Bellows and Brass under the direction of Keith Turnbull.

The trio’s expert players—Guy Few, Joseph Petric and Eric Vaillancourt—also double as actors, taking on the various roles written by Carson. Video artist Yan Breuleux provides the production with added visual expressions.
