Three performances THIS WEEKEND only – experience a mind-bending tale of magic, love, loyalty and revenge, in a crazy, collage-infused, mash-up performance piece presented by collision/theory.
Written and directed by Aaron Henne, this ambitious multi-media performance combines stunning visuals, cutting-edge design and breathtaking video footage created by Michael Manning and Lyn Gaza with live performance from a quintet of talented actors.
collision/theory’s Blood Red Lost Head Dead Falcon: The Nibelungen deconstructs the ancient Nibelungenlied tale — an 800 year-old German epic poem on which Wagner’s Ring Cycle of operas is based — and re-shapes the story into a wild, multi-media performance piece.
collision/theory’s Blood Red Lost Head Dead Falcon: THE NIBELUNGEN also references this tale of magic, love, loyalty and revenge. This mash up performance piece brings together projected animation sequences, video art, original music, live performance, movement sequences and lyrical language, to theatrically explore and explode this ancient tale.
This incredible theatrical and video artistic creation has been created in conjunction with the LA Opera Ring Festival 2010.
collision/theory’s Blood Red Lost Head Dead Falcon: The Nibelungen promises to be a truly unique, engaging, and exhilarating night of theater. With only three performances, you truly don’t want to miss out so order your tickets today!
