CreArt Box presents Architecture of a Common Man

Preview Workshops: March 17, 18 & 19, 7:30pm

CreArt Box presents Architecture of a Common Man, an opera-ballet-film performance that follows the journey of a world-recognized photographer working on a documentary about his own life, aiming to teach others how to be successful. While creating this documentary, he unveils a fascinating retrospective of his life.

Analyzing his relationship with work, family, health, and spirituality. Eventually discovering parts of himself that were buried in his professional ambitions. The main character is split into three performers, an actor on the screen plus 2 alter egos on the stage (a contemporary dancer and an opera baritone).

The music is originally written for soprano, baritone, string quartet, piano, synthesizer, and choir. This piece explores how society encourages us to be exceptional, great, perfect, successful, or unique, exploring the true meaning of success and how someone can find happiness in life by just being a common man.
