an Immersive Music Theatre Performance
“The dead are not your tools”
The stories of spirits, jinns, ghosts and other worldly beings hold a strong importance in our culture. These stories will be re-explored and retold in a new digitally immersive performance project.
Necromancy for Beginners hopes to take the audience on a journey between the worlds of the living and the non-living.
Necromancy for Beginners is a hybrid multimedia music theater led by a Thai composer Piyawat Louilarpprasert (Thailand), and a German stage director Martin Butler (Germany), in collaboration with Tacet(i) Ensemble, Wen Liu (Studio M.A.R.S.), Marcus Doering (PMD-ART), Kittiphan Janbuala, Thanapat Ogaslert and Thailand Music and Art Organization (TMAO).
The work amalgamates artistic disciplines among contemporary music concert, performing arts, immersive theatre with advanced digital technology. The production will be premiered during 23-25th of December 2022 at Bangkok Art and Culture Center as a main program of the Int Act Festival. The project is generously supported by International Coproduction Fund (IKF) - Goethe-Institut 2022.
