Multimedia scenography and comprehensive technical support for the world premiere of the Nicholas Lens’ opera “Slow man” based on the novel “Slow Man” by John Maxwell Coetzee.
“Slow man” is an opera directed by Maja Kleczewska, one of the most vibrant figures of the modern theatre. It is an outcome of the cooperation between the composer Nicholas Lens and the Nobel Prize winning author John Maxwell Coetzee, as well as an original adaptation of the novel. The main characters are played by leading actors of the American opera industry. The show was co-produced by the Grand Theatre in Poznań and Poznań Malta Festival.
We designed and implemented the whole multimedia installation as part of the play scenography. Two months of work and rehearsals enabled us to create a show featuring innovative projection responsive to the singers’ voices and dancers’ movements. We used live infrared cameras and micro cameras sewn into the performers’ costumes.
