Thunder, Perfect Mind
Our upcoming project, THUNDER, PERFECT MIND is a site-specific, immersive, opera installation that takes place in a large vertical spacesuch as an atrium or lobbyof a large building. Rooted in creation stories, Gnostic cosmologies and the myth of Sophia, Thunder brings the audience along on a narrative meditation on navigating the unknown. It is about finding one's place amid the confusion of the material world, and about discovering and following an individual path.

THUNDER is scored for two sopranos, twelve-part vocal ensemble, six percussionists, concert and improvising musicians, and movement ensemble. Sonic, visual and physical installation elements include two sets of 13 tuned long wires, hand-built Foley instruments, fixed audio, lighting design, video projections, and sculpted and found-object theatrical settings.

In this concert presentation at the Bridgeport Art Center a smaller group of artists will perform excerpts of Act 1, Act 2 and Act 3. Performers include:

Harrah Friedlander, Eve
Nathalie Colas, Emily Cox, Hope Litwin, Stacia Spencer, Dan Grambow, Samuel Weiser, vocal ensemble
Peter Ferry, Kyle Price, Phil Sudderberg, percussion and long wires
Allison Poh, Eric Hollander, Nick Meryhew, Liliana Wosko, concert quartet
Myra Hinrichs, Carrie Frey, Lia Kohl, SUS trio
