Sun & Sea Opera.

[Documentary] At the end of January, the idea was to meet @pame_orozcodonoso and have a beer. But plans changed when, instead of a bar, she invited me to meet at the performative opera piece "Sun & Sea" at the Centro Cultural La Moneda, Chile. With a toy camera, I played to be the beach photographer who walks around offering a long-lasting memory to the beachgoers.

About "Sun & Sea":

An opera-performance by:

Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė

Curator: Lucia Pietroiusti
Producer (tour): Aušra Simanavičiūtė
Production Manager/Stage Manager: Erika Urbelevič

"Imagine a beach – you within it, or better: watching from above – the burning sun, sunscreen and bright bathing suits and sweaty palms and legs. Tired limbs sprawled lazily across a mosaic of towels. Imagine the occasional squeal of children, laughter, the sound of an ice cream van in the distance. The musical rhythm of waves on the surf, a soothing sound (on this particular beach, not elsewhere). The crinkling of plastic bags whirling in the air, their silent floating, jellyfish-like, below the waterline. The rumble of a volcano, or of an airplane, or a speedboat. Then a chorus of songs: everyday songs, songs of worry and of boredom, songs of almost nothing. And below them: the slow creaking of an exhausted Earth, a gasp. (Lucia Pietroiusti)"
