trailer – carmen staged: ‘Love is a Baby dat grows up Wild’

Susanne Dietz, our wonderful video artist, has created a trailer for CARMEN STAGED, entitled ‘Love is a Baby dat Grow Wild: Re-Reading of the Media Archive’. She says this about it…

‘Love is a Baby dat grows up Wild. Re-Reading of the media archive’ is a montage of clips from Carmen movies that were made in particular social contexts at specific historical moments between 1915 and 2006.

Her video piece will be accompanying the live performance of the Orchestra of the UCOpera conducted by Charles Peebles on 11 February 2011 at The Bloomsbury Theatre. Book your tickets now!

In case you are wondering, all the images in this trailer come from existing (and some well-known) Carmen films. Any guesses as to which ones?
