Chorus Mysticus & the Rule of 3 (2015)

A double bill, Chorus Mysticus & the Rule of 3 were combined by the Hostry Festival in 2015.

the Rule of 3 is the story of a poet who finds her voice in a cynical, dismissive world.

Chorus Mysticus is a piece of movement theatre inspired by the music of Mahler, Chorus Mysticus is inspired by & set to the finale of Symphony No.8, to celebrate The Hostry Festival’s 2015 performance of Mahler’s Conversion.

All things transitory

But as symbols are sent:

Earth’s insufficiency

Here grows to Event;

The indescribable

Here it is done;

The Woman-soul leadeth us

Upward and on!

— From the Bayard Taylor translation
