The English opera derives from the Italian opera from the Latin opera meaning literally a "work, labor, effort." Elson's Music Dictionary defines opera as "a form of musical composition evolved shortly before 1600, by some enthusiastic Florentine amateurs who sought to bring back the Greek plays to the modern stage."
It is rather in the etymological sense of the word, but neither so distantly from the historical sense, that we present to you the original and experimental dance-opera un(_)requite(_)d, our labor of the past half-year.
For three dancers, string quartet and noise musician, un(_)requite(_)d is the poetics and mechanism of attraction and limit, the ensuing resonant chaos, exhaustive plateau, and system catastrophe, of a certain kind of love.
It is flight, image, abandonment, control. The other, the beyond, the pathetic, the beautiful. The word and the noise.
