Proto-type Theater present:
The Good, the God, and the Guillotine
A Theatrical Concert in Thirteen Chapters
A show that steals its style from the gig, the opera and the recital, The Good, the God and the Guillotine is a piece of theatre like no other.
Questioning existence itself in a theatrical concert for three performers, three laptop musicians, and a reactive scenography of lights, objects and animations, The Good, the God and the Guillotine is a dramatic and atmospheric exploration of our tangled relationships with technology.
Against a background of live, shifting animations, The Good, the God and the Guillotine responds to Albert Camus’ 1942 powerful novel L’Étranger (The Stranger). Proto-type Theater (UK/US: www.proto-type.org) are collaborating with the musicians and composers of the MMU Laptop Ensemble aka MMUle , lighting designer Rebecca MK Makus and animator/illustrator Adam York Gregory to create this music-driven performance that uses digital technology to craft an intertwining of song and narrative.
The Good the God and the Guillotine has been commissioned by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre (Lincoln), Manchester Metropolitan University (Crewe) and Tramway (Glasgow). Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The Good, the God and the Guillotine will premiere in Autumn 2013.
