Waste Paper Opera: abstracts, with love

Waste Paper Opera: abstracts, with love

Lancaster Arts presents the world premiere of Waste Paper Opera’s newest project, 'abstracts, with love', at the Nuffield Theatre. Commissioned by Lancaster University’s Future Places Centre, this multimedia performance combines music, sound design, film, and narration. 

This captivating production integrates the ordinary and human with the enigmatic, evolving landscapes of data, technology, and nature. ‘abstracts, with love’ blurs the lines between the familiar and the foreign, the local and the global. 

Inspiration is drawn from the ancient seaside, the relentless movement of ocean tides and the surprising beauty of the nuclear power plant. 'abstracts, with love' amplifies the tensions between human and non-human ecologies, with the strange sense of the past haunting the present, simulating a future. 

Waste Paper Opera is a collective of artists, makers and musicians, run by artist and writer Klara Kofen, and composer and performer James Oldham. In this new production, they are collaborating with composer and drummer Cameron Graham and sound artist and violinist Chihiro Ono.  


"A supremely creative production, at once exhilaratingly, wildly original and immaculately stylised"
