New York’s Mikel Rouse is a composer, singer, musician, film-maker and director. The Liverpool Culture Company has co-commissioned his latest work which plays with the idea that we will soon no longer simply sit and watch the two-dimensional screen.
His haunting electronic songs of love and longing are performed by him and a cast of actors and singers performing against a brilliant large screen blend of film, dramatic narrative, colour, design and special effects. It’s like watching the very best music video come alive before your very eyes.
This is a spectacular work which has earned rave reviews in its first performance in the US and is precisely about not just cities in transition but whole cultures in transition.
Liverpool’s Royal Court hosts the European premiere of the work, marking the end of Liverpool 08’s season of performances and coinciding with the Liverpool Biennial.
