A Harbourfront Centre Fresh Ground new works commission

TORONTO, ON (Oct. 21, 2010) – Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage 2010-11 is proud to host Vancouver-based multidisciplinary performance group Boca del Lupo and the world premiere of their innovative new work PHOTOG: an imaginary look at the uncomprom- ising life of Thomas Smith.

Recipient of a Fresh Ground new works award, Harbourfront Centre’s national commissioning programme, Boca del Lupo’s latest creation is a recollection of the life of a war photographer as seen from his eyes and through his lens. PHOTOG runs November 17 through November 20 at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.

Drawn from the real life accounts and verbatim text from interviews Boca del Lupo conducted with top conflict photographers Tim Heatherington, Michael Kamber and Farah Nosh, PHOTOG examines the juxtapositions and internal struggles that many photographers experience between foreign soil and home turf; between privilege and suffering; between disconnect and belonging; between war and peace.

Thomas Smith is an amalgam of these award-winning international photojournalists and Boca del Lupo fuses the unfolding of his imagined life with dazzling computer animation, real-time video, startling images and physical theatre. PHOTOG stimulates a deeper reflection into the internal struggles that a conflict photographer brings back from war above and beyond the photographs.

PHOTOG was devised by Sherry J. Yoon, who also directs, and writer/performer Jay Dodge, who portrays Thomas Smith.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode.
