Immersive, Site-Specific Installation inspired by Andy Warhol and his “Factory” Studio
Torpedo Factory Art Gallery
"For the first time, I believed the setup ... DC Public Opera transformed the Torpedo Factory hallways into an exhibit of foil sculptures and spangly silver curtains reminiscent of that kind of disco glitz of the sixties and seventies. In the very first scene, the foil covering is ripped apart to reveal Warhol-like repeated portraits of the two young male characters ... The fact that we in the audience can see working artist studios up and down the surrounding halls extend the set to integrate the entire warehouse experience."
”Jennifer Williams is finding fresh ways to deliver opera ... creating strong, physicalized characters in satisfying ways."
