“What is a performer without an audience?”
Music: Juliana Hall
Text: Caitlin Vincent
Director: René Kmet
Soprano/screenplay: Ema Katrovas
Dramaturg: Roosmarijn Brans
Producer: Jiří Fusek (Framework Studio)
Sentiment is a 12-minute musical short film in pre-production based on the monodrama of the same name for unaccompanied soprano, composed by Juliana Hall to a text by Caitlin Vincent. Sentiment will be a visually extravagant, surreal, absurdist and at times humorously self-ironic piece of self-revelation which asks the question: “What is a performer without an audience?” This question has taken on a new sense of urgency with the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
The creators are currently planning to assemble their crew from live theater creators, thus turning the project into an educational opportunity which answers to the particular demands of our time. They plan to shoot a documentary about the process of filming which would explore the dialogue between theater and film.
Tentative release: 2023
