Pictures of backstage!
Here are some photos of backstage before our dress rehearsal. We are slowly getting some video and photos of the performance, but in the meantime a dear friend and collaborator of Torben's, Rick New, took these photos and gave permission to share them with you. It is a behind-the-scenes look at prepping for the show.
We had a wonderful performance last night, and another sold-out show!
Here is an excerpt from the Blog at OTB by Eric P -
"Cacophony for 8 Players erupts with a klaxon of shredding horn. Is a surrealist dreamscape of sound and chess piece figures. The direction of smoke as it wafts between currents. Dark and moody, effecting a reverence of eastern influence, Ulrich's long beard pointing to rattling boxes. The deteriorating grey web of sculpture turning, a splash of green on swaying hips, writhing muscled back, catapulting dynamo and fractured electronics effect an hallucinogenic mind melt. Dense uncertainties pushed by cacophony. Confusing something that is nothing. It's like watching your fevered feelings take form through broken glass."
Thank you all so much for your support!
