Unseal / Unseam & Erwartung
  • Edinburgh Fringe

An electroacoustic opera adapted from Bluebeard's Castle (composer Bla Bartk), performed with a concert version monodrama, Erwartung (composer Arnold Schoenberg). The woman, soprano and sound artist Micaela Tobin, returns to her physically abusive partner. In an attempt to break a vicious cycle, they confront the darkest pieces of themselves. The woman's psychological purgatory is physicalized through a combination of immersive object performance, multimedia sound installation and live improvised music.
