CULTUREMART 2015: Thomas Paine in Violence Paul Pinto

About the show

Simultaneously set in and around the mind of the revolutionary activist, Thomas Paine in Violence is a text-dense psychedelic opera inspired by the final days of the American Founding Father's life, the strange events of his “afterlife”, and the shock jock punditry of our contemporary media landscape. Its score is a combination of lightning quick speech and song, electronics, and a vocalizing chorus of instrumentalists. This is the first full-length theatre work by composer/librettist/performer Paul Pinto, in collaboration with co-librettist Rick Burkhardt, vocalist Joan La Barbara and the ensemble Ne(x)tworks.
