SHEET LIGHT VERSION

ORLANDO - New Paradigm Opera 

 

General
ORLANDO (light version) is an opera of a new kind, a performative installation made of ten videos projected successively on one screen, 
a sound artist installed among the audience, in dialogue with the projections.

ORLANDO (light version) can be presented indoors or outdoors.  

 

Versions of the performance
ORLANDO (light version) can be shared with audiences in two ways :

- As a audio-video installation without live performance (24/24h if the set device is placed in a dark space or during night time if the set device is placed in a bright space or outdoors)

- As a performative installation (30min) during which a guest-musician or sound artist plays live and performs facing the screen, together with the audience.

Workshop and Talks
Each presentation of ORLANDO (light version) is preceded by a one- to three-day workshop and followed by a conversation (30 to 60min) between the artists and the audience. Guest-researchers, philosophers, speakers, thinkers, activists are invited to participate to the after-talks related to individual and collective post-binary evolutions.
