// assistant director + choreographer

Alejandro ViƱao’s The Baghdad Monologue (Scottish Premiere), performed by soprano Frances M Lynch, explores the everyday pain of war. A rhythmic electroacoustic score with tightly woven text portrays a familiar situation that is as old as civilization: the forceful intervention of the strong and the powerful to ‘protect’ and ‘liberate’ the weak.

Directed by Cathie Boyd, combining music with design from James Johnson, Theo Clinkard and Nich Smith.
