In different locations, two writers type out observations of the world unfolding around them. In that same moment, a town choir receives these observations via a large screen and sings them out to the public. Drawing on patterns of relaying information that mirror Twitter or Facebook, Town Choir treats everyday considerations as the news. Intimate and minute details are transmitted through the ether and then filtered through the live body in an epic choral declaration. Theatre Replacement builds performances that react to contemporary existence. Their work reflects a concern with creating innovative new forms for worldwide audiences.
The Supertones will be performing alongside Tonnta. Writers are Dave Rudden and Deirdre Sullivan.
