ABOUT: Founded in 1981, Pantheatre was the first independent company to emerge from the Roy Hart Theatre (1969-1989). Its directors are founding members of the Roy Hart International Artistic Centre. It was founded by Enrique Pardo with a solo performance on the God Pan, following several years of voice and movement research with a circle of actors from the original Roy Hart Theatre Company – amongst them, Liza Mayer, Linda Wise, Vicente Fuentes, Saule Ryan, Kevin Crawford, Diana Palmer, Noah Pikes and Kozana Lucca.
Directed by Linda Wise – with pianist Pierre-François Blanchard.
Interpreting songs - including Roy Hart extended voice ranges and voice performance improvisational departures.
“Singing a song is a performance challenge in which you have three to five minutes to tell a story, constellate an idea and convey an emotion. It is an expression unremitting in its structure – you search to discover your own unique musicality with both its accuracy and feeling, whilst giving the information of the text. You also have to enhance and resolve the poetic and psychological tension between music and words.” Linda Wise.
