Letter Piece Cie ’A to Zzz’

don 02/02/2012 > woe 15/02/2012

In February 2012, the Letter Piece Company will premier A to Zzz, an hour-long work for six performers featuring physical action, music, text and light design.

The title announces the concept: A to Zzz moves through the alphabet, with each letter representing something. That something might be a person (F = Fred Flinstone), a topic (S = samba) or a principle (V = variation). The passage through the alphabet provides a scaffold, a solid reference point for an otherwise unpredictable journey full of constant surprise, imagination, digressions and ruptures!

The work draws on a broad and unexpected range of everyday, popular and art culture: the movement of ballet, break dance and body language; the music/sound of abstract textures, field recordings and 80s pop; and the lighting of the rock concert, motorway, and bedside lamp.
