COMEDÌA / PT. 1: INFERNO
Comedà is a chamber opera with electroacoustic music based on Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. For this epic work, Transforma designed a four sided video stage around the solo performer. Working in close relation to the acoustic signature, the cube‘s playable structure is used to reflect Dante‘s emotional inner journey.
