Lecture: Don't Blame Anyone: Imagining an Opera with No Boundaries

  • Mexican Cultural Institute 2829 16th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States

Join the Mexican Cultural Institute for a talk on opera without boundaries with Mexican-Born Composers Carlos Sánchez-Gutiérrez and Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon. The two will show video excerpts and discuss the genesis and realization of "Don't Blame Anyone/No se culpe a nadie," their recent stage work involving music, physical theatre, and puppetry, in collaboration with US and Mexico-based artists BrandBand Ensemble, PUSH Physical Theatre and La Coperacha. The work is based on the graphic imagery of noted Mexican cartoonist Jis, and explores, through a series of interconnected vignettes, the elusive encounter between imagination and creativity, the terror experienced before the blank page, the battle against the demons of Reason, and the unpredictable visit of the muses.
