Een mini opera productie van Engelse Eccentric/universeel genie Ergo Phizmiz op drie achtereenvolgende dagen; vrijdag (2200u), zaterdag (2000u) en zondag (1500u).
The Third Policeman is an electronic neur-opera based on Flann O’Brien’s perplexing masterpiece. Part thriller, part comedy, part science-fiction, this radical adaptation combines stagecraft, animation, shadow puppetry, and distinctive, unforgettable music into an astounding composite for the ears and eyes. Expect bicycles, murder, atomic theory, typewriters, infinity, and sweets.
The Third Policeman is a truly 21st century artwork, using a wide array of creative methods and approaches in handmade and digital art to bring Ergo’s idiosyncratic take on Flann O’Brien’s already idiosyncratic world to life.
Created in collaboration with a host of artists who can only be described in today’s incessant jargon as “outsiders”, and performed by a cast of non-trained singers and comedians, with visual influences from Eastern European animation and musical references ranging from British dance bands to intricate electronic music, it will be an unforgettable and unique sensory experience
