Stephen Cropper (2017)

Thursday, February 6, 2020 to Saturday, February 8, 2020

Matthew Bourne and Franck Vigroux will be resident at the ZIL Cultural Centre in Moscow to develop their new work for piano and electronics, concluded by a World premiere performance of the work on February 7. The project is a theatrical realisation of Yevgeny Zamyatin’s novel, We, for piano, electronics and lighting design. Working with the original text as inspiration, minimal piano textures, sensitive electronics and lighting design, Bourne & Vigroux hope to make an impactful statement that is a stark, original rendering of Zamyatin's work. Their activities in Moscow will also be documented by a local filmmaker. In addition to developing this new work, Bourne & Vigroux hope to collaborate and record with local musicians during their stay in Moscow, and afterwards, will travel to St. Petersburg to perform We (as part of a triple-bill concert with other Russian artists) at the Museum of Music on February 8.
