Opera Erratica at the Print Room from 14 May

Toujours et Près de Moi combines holograms, music and live theatre

This is a fractured tale of absence and regret told through moving music, startling images and visual wonder.

Toujours et Près de Moi is a world premiere and the first UK production from critically acclaimed international performance company Opera Erratica.

Live physical theatre, Victorian theatrical illusion and the latest video technology combine to create a dislocated performance space in which puppet-sized holograms interact with their live, life-sized selves. Meanwhile, Renaissance madrigals by Carlo Gesualdo are mixed with startling contemporary vocal pieces by Salvatore Sciarrino, Christopher Fox and James Weeks, adding to the sense of past/present dislocation.

Toujours et Près de Moi promises audiences a challenging and haunting new theatrical experience exploring presence and absence, memory and loss, connection and separation.

The Print Room is a small venue in Westbourne Grove. www.the-print-room.org

The production runs Monday 14 May – Saturday 26 May.
