In the Penal Colony

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


This is the first attempt to engage with the repertoire of Music Theatre with the same approach that I take to my work with Quarantine. Stepping over the orchestra pit and seeking to develop a form that can allow the audience musicians and performers to inhabit the same undivided space. Here the placing of the audience onstage serves both as a visual connection to the piece for the main bank of audience, reflecting their own presence at the event, as a scenic element in this instance as witnesses to the execution and vitally allows those audience members onstage a more immediate sensory experience.
