@ GEORGE WOOD THEATRE, GOLDSMITHS (DRAMA DEPT.)


FREE, ALL ARE WELCOME


*Les Noces Project*

Les Noces Project is inspired by the Stravinsky's ballet cantata Les
Noces. Hopkins and his collaborators, Nijinska (choreography) and
Goncharova (Visual design,) imported the rituals of a Russian peasant
wedding onto the stage, exposing them to unflinching aesthetic
investigation across their collaborative disciplines. The work was
conceived using unusual musical forces, such as four electromechanical
player-pianos. The work revealed a hitherto consoling cultural ideal to
be a violent process of social coercion.

TIM HOPKINS is the AHRC Fellow in the Creative and Performing Arts
Centre for Research in Opera and Music Theatre Department of Music,
University of Sussex.
