Lauren Brincat: Tutti Presto fff, 2022 | Vivid LIVE
Access and Inclusion
Beginning as a unique embodied response, Brincat has translated the words, sounds, actions and gestures of the Opera House building into an abstract cloth sail that serves as the cornerstone of a series of performances. Large, shapeshifting and fluid, the sail will be manipulated by a chorus of performers and the artist herself, accompanied by a musical score of drummers who are interpreting, beating and sounding the musical notations shaping the sail.
In half hour performances during Vivid LIVE on the Sydney Opera House Forecourt and Monumental Steps, Brincat’s work uses a group of close collaborators from various backgrounds to make a scene. Brincat’s collaboration with co-composer Alyx Dennison and textile designer Leah Giblin exists as an experimental sonic and visual intervention — offering audiences a moment of pause, imploring us to stop, think and feel. Through sound and spectacle, Tutti Presto fff, reminds us of the importance of being alive, present in the now and encourages us to take note of the world around us.
