Rehearsal for Grand Opera for One Person : Bugonia / These Necrotic Ethos Come the Plains”

May 26, 2013 | Exhibitions, Visual Work

Pulling from toy theater and the operatic tradition of regietheater, combined with the effect of streaming media in the present day, Caroline Picard and Devin King’s Rehearsal for Grand Opera for One Person inserts these threads into a DIY exhibition site and performance art context. Eventually intended for a one-person audience, King and Picard will present a public rehearsal of their microscopic opera that combines lecture, poetry, and video within A Slender Gamut’s 5′x5′ exhibition space.
