“Brightness. The Series” is a music theatre performance for mixed choir, soloists, electric guitar, and DJ. In four ‘episodes’, the story line plays with re-interpretation, repetition, recognition, action, suspense, tension and other characteristics of tv series. Emotions like boredom, love, jealousy, hatred, greed, guilt and joy are revealed through seemingly unconnected situations performed by recorded voices and electronically generated sound environment and reflected in live music and singing.
“The higher the grade of brightness, the more immediate are the senses,” – says composer Kristaps Pētersons.
