Duets for Actor and Musician
CONCEPT AND DIRECTION / XAN COLMAN
Duets for Actor and Musician is a theatrical installation which reinterprets the form of the monologue as a score for multiple parts. Unstitching notions of the singular subject, this collaboration between director, three writers, three actors, three musicians, and three visual artists delivers the solo instead as a song for two.

A theatrical installation which lays bare the details of individual psyche which intercede to render it whole, Duets for Actor and Musician is an enlivening fracture of self-perception, and a unique exploration of form.
