Scenographer & Curating team
Performer: Cynthia Callejas
Designed and conceived by Talia as part of CRUSH showcase at Hackney Showroom in London.
Talia is presenting her visions in scenography and set design through the ground-breaking opera ‘La Voix Humaine’, written by Jean Cocteau and composed by Francis Poulenc. In a world of highly interconnected society, she explores isolation and self expression materialising a physical 3d model in such a way that the different fragments of Elle’s dialogue were spatially shaped. Recreating a replica of Studio 1 in Arcola theatre, the miniature version was divided into 9 sections supported by red cords. These cords were the object that maintained the tension between the body and the piece of fragment in which the body was located.
