Appel aux dons - Façons tragiques de tuer une femme (working title) - Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord
The Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord is appealing for donations for the creation of the opera Façons tragiques de tuer une femme (working title) by Diana Soh.
A one act chamber opera without orchestra about what it means to be a wonder woman in today's context and how this imperative can provoke internal death.
In Soh's new one-act chamber opera, the disparity of treatment between men and women is articulated through the life and loves of the women on stage. Taking inspiration from the Greek tragedies, this modern-day representation showcases the full and timeless spectrum of micro-aggressions and violence against women.
Inspired by the book Façon tragique de tuer une femme by Nicole Loraux, this project examines systemic violence against women using the greek tragedies as a springboard. The entire opera set itself will be the musical construct that demonstrates these timeless domestic problems.
This project creates an ambitious opportunity for the writing of the music staging and text to be done in parallel such that all 3 aspects are so highly intertwined, the result will be a true collaborative work that melts from one domain to another.
