Studio Drift elevates the production of L'Orfeo with a striking opera sculpture that is made with 10 miles of ultra-fine nylon. The installation provides a dramatic setting for the performance and is used to better relate to the audience the changing "inner world of the characters on stage." Without a doubt, this adds another dimension of immersion for the act.
The kinetic opera sculpture is the product of a collaboration between the progressive art studio and the Nederlandse Reisopera (Dutch National Touring Opera). The partnership is an example of 'Gesamtkunstwerk,' which is a term used to describe an art experience that makes use of multiple mediums. To complete the collective objective, the creatives worked with a flexible, "hair-thin reflective Japanese fluorocarbon thread," which is said to share the properties of a fishing line.
