GOYA

Sat., Oct. 3, 2015 7:30 p.m.

Location: Shu-Box Theatre, Dr. William Riddell Centre, University of Regina

An exciting new work is set to premiere at the University of Regina in October.  Presented by the artists’ collective Auto Repair Club, GOYA is a multi-disciplinary performance piece with music by Saskatchewan composer WL Altman and libretto and stage direction by Ontario artist David Fancy.

 GOYA fuses techno and classical operatic music to make a unique spectacle.  Through singing, movement, live DJ and VJ action, and virtual environments, five paintings by the great Spanish painter Francisco Goya come alive, tracing the artist’s journey from courtly painter to chronologer of the decay of an age.  Set in a club-like atmosphere, GOYA promises to engage audience members on many levels.  

 The work features soprano Helen Pridmore as soloist, with original video work by Regina artist Ian Campbell.  Campbell will also provide live, improvised video projections during the performance, with live DJ action from local artists. Regina designer and University of Regina Associate Dean of Fine Arts Wes Pearce has tackled the multi-dimensional aspects of scenic design for this production.
