A Prestidigitation

NOT AVAILABLE FOR PIURCHASE

A 70-120 minute multi-media Joycean stream of consciousness dreamscape comprised of the Zuzu's petals-like memory shards of life streaming through the mind of American filmmaker, actor, activist, and visual artist Orson Welles during the last hour of his life. Welles is portrayed by three singers, accompanied by musicians and performed live to three synchronized 70-minute montages of visual images created by the composer that correspond to musical and textual motives in the piece. The first iteration of the work debuted at the Studebaker Theater in Chicago on 15-16 September 2018, starring Robert Orth, Robert Frankenberry, and Omar Mulero of the New Mercury Collective, in association with Atlas Arts Media, and the Fifth House Ensemble.
