Projected imagery will play a significant role in NORPAs latest production. Electric Lenin presents an interplay of music, text, performance and digital imagery.
Music theatre has long argued whether text or music is the principal source of meaning in telling the story, said director Patrick Nolan. Our production will extend this argument to include design specifically digital design. At times it will be the text which is leading the way, at other times it will be music, and at other times again it will be the projected imagery.
Electric Lenin is based on the story of a North Coast farmer who developed relationships across the globe via his ham radio. Janis Balodiss libretto uses elements of this life like rural isolation and communication to tell this story of memory and loss.
Electric Lenin runs at Lismore City Hall next Wednesday to Friday, November 22-24, at 8pm.
