In October 2009, a composer/lyricist team was asked to select a fortune cookie. They created a musical theatre piece based on the fortune. Two weeks later, they presented their work to another artist. This artist then had two weeks to create a piece based on the work shown to him (never having seen the fortune), and then presented his art to the next artist in the series. She then created a piece...and then another artist, and then another artist... eventually, eleven in all.
In Synesthesia 2010 the assembled works of all eleven artists will be presented live, in-sequence.
Witness the next stage in the convergence of media. Now in its fourth season, Synesthesia is a live, annual event, which unites a select and diverse range of arts and artists for eight performances only. Synesthesia is an Electric Pear exclusive, conceived by Ashlin Halfnight and Melanie Sylvan, and staged for the first time in 2007. This year's show will offer up an evening of original music, theatre, art, film, dance...and surprises!
