La Machine de l’être
Composer:John Zorn
Librettist:John Zorn
Synopsis
"The piece takes its name from a drawing by Antonin Artaud created during his last days in the asylum at Rodez…I describe it as a monodrama because it is scored for only one singer…there is no text, no plot, and no stage directions predetermined whatsoever…the drama is contained in the music and the title…the visual interpretation of it is left up to the imagination and creativity of the director, stage designer, and singer to decide…it is my hope that the stage presentation somehow draws inspiration from the spirit of Artaud, his art, philosophy, and writings...but from there on the possibilities are wide open..."
-John Zorn
