Shoot The Lobster is pleased to announce The End, Light Blue, an ensemble performance
composed by Juan Antonio Olivares and Eve Essex, on July 5th, 2012 at 7 pm.

Drawing from the possibility of translation between image and sound, Olivares and Essex have
created a visual and text-based score inspired by post-production foley techniques. With the
consultation of Marko Costanzo, a veteran Hollywood foley artist (Brokeback Mountain,
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Ice Age), the artists have reinterpreted cinematic sound effects
as a system of musical elements.

Ten performers cycle through a variety of roles ranging from quotidian gestures to highly
choreographed musical events. Everyday sounds are meticulously recreated by a small
ensemble of instrumentalists; physical actions are dramatically and rhythmically amplified. A
series of seemingly senseless events cue reactions within the group, in an evolving and organic
accretion of sound.

Furniture by Valerie Keane. Performers: Leila Bordreuil (cello), Theo Di Castri, Eve Essex, Alex
Field, Jeremy Fischer, Ted Gordon (viola), Nicole Louie, Matt Marble, James Mercer, Juan
Antonio Olivares.

Special thanks to Marko Costanzo.
