This is a work in progress. Semi-staged extracts, weaving music, dance, verbatim, art and poetry, will be shared to coincide with the new Sophie Taeuber-Arp exhibition at London’s Tate Modern. What happens to a talented female artist when she’s part of an artistic couple? What pressures does she face? Taking as a starting point the joint 1937 work Marital Sculpture where two sections have been cut to expose the ‘inside’, this new opera is inspired by the extraordinary Swiss Artist/Dancer Sophie Taeuber-Arp and her relationship with the Dadaist/Poet Jean Arp. A member of the Dada movement, dancer at the notorious Cabaret Voltaire and a unique voice across a host of diverse art forms, Sophie faced many struggles before her tragic death in 1943. The interactive broadcast will include a Q&A with key members of the creative team. It will be live captioned throughout, though it may not be verbatim. A BSL interpreter will be present during the Q&A.
