Cluster 2017's opening event!
Two powerful examinations of contemporary culture:
In Training is the Opposite, a singer performs a virtuosic boxing routine on stage, accompanied by a string quartet (Quatuor Bozzini). This short opera by Irish composer Jennifer Walshe features mezzo-soprano Laura Bowler, who was trained and choreographed specially for the role by Cathy “The Bitch” Brown, the former number three World Boxing Champion.
CPA [Consistent Partial Attention] is an excerpt of Freya Björg Olafson’s newest ensemble dance piece. It is a paradoxical meditation on what it means to be present in our contemporary screen-obsessed existence, featuring performers guided by found footage videos of dancers dancing in their homes.
