Cluster 2017: C.P.A. [considten partial attention]

  • Rachel Browne Theatre 211 Bannatyne Avenue Winnipeg, MB, R3B 1M3 Canada (map)

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.
