TRIPTYCH & POSTSCRIPT
By Eve Klein and Ravi Glasser-Vora
Shipwrecked, a company of soldiers are lost at sea. The survivors wash-up on a populated island. They land with guns.
Triptych & Postscript is a musical journey unpacking our human capacity for violence and environmental destruction. A mash-up of 1950s radio dramas, epic poetry and opera, Triptych and Postscript uses words, sounds, songs and electronica to paint a brooding historical portrait of Western colonialism in the Asia-Pacific.
Formatted in four discrete segments totaling 60 minutes in length, this work provides an immersive and gentle container for developing an urgent dialogue about the long-term consequences of present-day political decisions around climate change and asylum seeker detention.
