Object Collection ‘It’s All True’ (UK premiere) + Historically Fucked + Yeah You
Slip 2 DAY RESIDENCY at Café OTO
New York ensemble Object Collection visit OTO with 2 performances of ‘It’s All True’, an opera-in-suspension based on the complete live archives of iconic underground band Fugazi.
Grounded upon the DC post-hardcore outfit’s 1987-2002 Live Archive series, composer Travis Just and writer/director Kara Feely’s work uses only the incidental music, text and sounds, none of Fugazi’s actual songs. An obsessive leap into 1500 hours of gig detritus – random feedback, aimless drum noodling, pre-show activist speeches, audience hecklers, police breaking up gigs – is the foundation of an ear-body-and-mind-flossing 100 minutes for 4 voices/performers, 4 electric guitars/basses and 2 drummers. It’s All True is overloaded, maddening, mundane, properly funny, and a radical incitement to action.
Object Collection will be performing an unstaged set for 70 minutes on both nights. This will be the first UK airing of material from the opera.
Thursday 21st Sep: ragged tangle Historically Fucked support + Friday 22nd Sep: poisonous pop team Yeah You.
***All tied in with September releases from OBJECT COLLECTION and YEAH YOU***
