Great Exhibitionists: Set in Stone

6:45pm | 30 April 2017 | Recital Hall

Carola Krebs project leader

Experience a multi-disciplinary live performance investigating the aspects of history repeating itself over and over again.

Set in Stone? is a collaboration between a composer, musicians, five actors and a sound engineer. Bringing together artists from all over Europe (Hungary, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Italy, Norway, Portugal and Spain) across cultures and practices, we will be investigating the aspects of history repeating itself over and over again.

Music, text fragments from Euripides’ play The Trojan Women and projected images will be used to tell the story of how wars affect people, almost always meaning devastation and pain. Euripides’ play follows the story of the women of Troy that are left behind after the war and their fate. The actors weave together this old Greek tragedy and their own stories and experiences. How is the present situation different to what has happened in previous centuries and millenniums? Have we learned from history?

Taking up the spirit of the 1851 Great Exhibition, this cutting-edge series is curated entirely by students. For more information visit www.rcm.ac.uk/greatexhibitionists.

Tickets: Free but required
