Director needed for ‘Suggestions of Love’

DIRECTOR required for London performances in September 2013

T· ArT is looking for a director to join our production of Luca Tieppo’s Suggestions of  Love.

Two weeks rehearsals (one in late July / early August, one from August 26th) and in between performances as necessary. Performances at the King’s Head Theatre on August 31st, September 7th and 14th at 3pm.

Synopsis

Storytelling fuses with contemporary music in this new work by Luca Tieppo (music) and Riccardo Bentsik (texts) for female singer (She), male singer (He), spoken word (Mr Wyrd) and piano (ca 75′).

ClockworkA She and a He, and Mr Wyrd, a sort of fate that seems to hesitate between freedom and accident. Wyrd is introduced while tending to complex mechanisms and music boxes, which represent life’s continuous routine that can only be broken by an unexpected element: he combines such elements.

At the beginning, She and He are alone but Mr Wyrd’s fanciful and bizarre mechanisms allow them to meet. The first brief encounter leaves behind itself a phase of reflection: She and He sing their dreams but also their fears for the price that Love would ask them to pay. In the second half, Wyrd decides to give a little boost for a new and more promising meeting opportunity. All the rest is a matter of course: from the sweetness of courtship and consolation to the explicit abandon of the lovers’ bodies.
