UMO Ensemble: MALDOROR at West of Lenin
UMO's newest work dives deep into the mind and soul of a villain - Maldoror. Inspired by 19th century Surrealist writer le Comte de Lautré;mont (pen name for Isidore Ducasse), UMO brings Maldoror to life with its highly physical, acrobatic, virtuoso theatre.Poetry, athleticism, and head-rattling dissonance combine to look behind the mask,to unearth the highly relatable passions behind a resolutely violent and nihilistic personality.

Dark, giddy and hallucinatory:

UMO delves into LautrĂ©;mont's animal imagery to create characters never before seen on stage: zoomorphs. These zoomorphs throw themselves into collage-like scenes created in collaboration with Seattle musician Andre Sanabria, a multi-instrumentalist with roots in noise, industrial, ambient drone and experimental electronics. Surrealism, noise, movement  all blended together in a concoction both thrilling and terrifying, an exploration of a true villain. All this, plus FILM. Thanks to the Northwest Film Forum, UMO is going on camera.Cinema will never be the same.

Maldoror was commissioned by the Northwest Film Forum for their Live at the Film Forum series. It premieres at NWFF September 14  16. More info and tickets at: www.nwfilmforum.org, 206.329.2629
