Luciana Perc's 'Film Performance', a musical response to Samuel Beckett and Buster Keaton's 'Film;


Film is a 1965 short film that was a collaboration between Samuel Beckett and Buster Keaton. Argentinian composer Luciana Perc has created a musical response to this with her new piece, Film Performance

The work uses microphones and cameras on stage to create electroacoustic sounds and a film projection in real time. Everyday objects featured in Film are brought to the stage and turned into sound-making devices, with a series of solos, each focused on a specific combination of objects, from a newspaper and a hat to a fish tank and a bird cage, combining the sounds produced with these objects with vocal, instrumental and electroacoustic sounds.

Film Performance will be premiered as part of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2022, on 3 September 2022 at the Cockpit, London NW8 8EH with music and sound design by Luciana Perc, performances by Lindsey Eastham, Anna Marmion, Thomas Niesser, Garreth Romain, Miranda Ostler, Anna Pych and Camille Maalawy, costume design by Eugenia Fiusco, set design by Amara Cooke and real-time video design by Enrico Dorigatti.
