The Shrine of Sympathetic Resonance

In 2019 

 

- Accounting

If you’re looking at The Shrine of Sympathetic Resonance, you’ll see 40′ tall, 50′ across musical structure with five outer pentagonal chambers, a tower rising up from the center atrium, and over 10,000 musical strings for people to play with.

Inside the space opens up, resembling a small open air cathedral. As you draw near, you see every wall is made from a piano soundboard – including the musical strings, metal harp, and the wooden frame.

In the center of it all is a performance dias.  Directly above the stage is a five sided cupola constructed of piano harps and antique windows, below which hangs an elaborate chandelier.

These design elements and materials are echoed in the five intimate chambers that surround the space. Intricate woodworking adorns the dais and chamber floors below, while copper patina and complex rope work accent the roofs.

Calamity Jane, Martha Jane Cannary, a écrit à sa fille Janey qu'elle a confiée à un couple d'adoptants, des lettres qu'elle ne lui envoyait pas. Elle lui raconte son "Ouest", son amour pour Bill Hickok, ses remords, ses exploits, ses mensonges, des lettres d'une extraordinaire vitalité dont les entrelacs de la mise en scène permettent de passer du récit de western (théâtre d'objets et bande son évocatrice) à l'humanité émouvante d'une femme solitaire et affranchie.
