Show About Time...

Recommended Posts

Riffing off another thread where we got talking about Don Ellis.  Pick charts written in weird time signatures.

Maybe this isn't the right place, but trying to pick the brains of some knowledgable people...

What ideas, concepts, themes, etc. would you put into a show about time? Specifically, a show entitled, "The Illusion of Time." Wondering if there are any things, other than what I have already thought, to bring to the table when our staff sits down near the end of the month to develop our show direction for the Fall.

go to the WGI vids on you tube..there are countless "Time" shows" over the years, props, music, costuming..

Always liked Spirit’s time show. What was it, 2003?

I think as a preshow, or a quieter opener a la scv 16 or bk 15 for example, a good piece would be Manny's Gym by John Adams. Lots of meter changes and the whole piece sorta feels suspended in time.

visuals inspired by The Persistence of Memory

 

Imagining the possibilities here... props or backdrops of some sort, if done well... could be very cool.

And since it's such an iconic painting... they had better be done well.  LOL.
