Work-in-progress sharing / discussion with audience
Wednesday, 18 October, at 19:00, location: Red Room
With composer Matthew Grouse in a quasi-documentarian role, the investigative core of music-theatre work ‘We’re Pleased To Meet Us’ is EKKI MINNA Duo itself, as distinct individuals and as two halves of a whole. The trio committed to a radically egalitarian creative process, which itself becomes the primary focus of the performed work, with all its flaws and foibles.
Introspective narrative is woven from elements of documentary-style footage of the collaborative process, musical commentary, electro-acoustic collaging of voices, and the choreographic potential in our individual physical mannerisms.
In this IAC showcase, the trio share a work-in-progress performance of the first few sections of the work and will then invite the audience to discuss what they have just seen.
