Event description
Trulee Hall's weird and wonderful new opera for Hot with Excess: A Season of Contemporary Artists’ Opera

About this Event

Part of Hot with Excess: A Season of Contemporary Artists’ Opera, a special season of live events exploring the collision of contemporary art and opera, featuring Sam Belinfante, Beatrice Gibson, Trulee Hall, Richard Kennedy, Benjamin Orlow, Marijke de Roover and Alexandre Singh.

Marking Trulee Hall’s first project in Europe, this ritualistic theatrical event explores the sacred and profane; the awkward and sexy. Hall’s novel feminism disrupts gendered archetypes and re-purposes elements of erotica; using large-scale puppetry, dancing sculptures, elaborate costumes and expansive choreography, which fuses the musical performance into a lush visual feast.

Her euphoric visual narrative responds to the architecture and atmosphere of the former Methodist chapel of the Zabludowicz Collection, in which it is performed. Hall combines the structure of opera, classically-trained singers, and an original score – influenced by gospel, rap, beatboxing, glossolalia, minimalist noise and pop – all accompanied by live instrumentation. Tongues Duel the Corn Whores, an Opera explodes psycho-sexual quandaries and produces something entirely its own.
