The New Cosmic Symphony


XRE’s “The New Cosmic Symphony” is an all-cis-female lead production by Clara Francesca, Electric Djinn and She’s Excited!, integrating international artists of diverse backgrounds across the Americas, Asia, Europe, Africa and Australasia. The performance is a three-tiered experience on platforms of multi-interdisciplinary arts for a new audience using analogue and digital interfaces. The production provides ambisonic architectorial modalities, educational exploration, experimentation, and discussions for institutions interested in hiring the lead creators with/without collaborators. “The New Cosmic Symphony” is a story honouring the cycle of life; the digital world is running our collective existence. In the midst of this time-period, our Higher Selves (the audience & the performers) board a train with two children. On this train, Sound (the musicians) is fueling the life-source engine. Language (the actors & the white-European train conductor) is dictating our lower selves’ thoughts. And Space (the theatre & virtual room) is driving our sense of existence. The audience follows the story of these two children who seem to be riding in the same train, yet are separated by something. One of them begins to awaken to the white-gaze, and the complicity of compartmentalizing differences. The digital world has made paradoxically everything easier and harder. Slowly the child befriends technology, and realises that it is constantly connected to the wonderful uniqueness of diverse perceptions within the cycle of life. “The New Cosmic Symphony” was invited to participate in a ten-day residency in August 2020 at Orietta Crispino’s TheaterLab in Manhattan, ending with a live stream of a full rehearsal featuring Guy Masterson, Sayaka Alba, Sky Rolnick, Pink Supakarn and Phillip Baldwin as well as art by Austin Lee and Nkosinathi Magubane. In September the Symphony was featured in the online gallery of Ars Electronica 2020.
