Acerca del evento

The experimental ensemble piece Death of The Pugilist, based on contemporary American novelist Daniel Mason’s short story, embodies everything exceptional about a BenFeng Production: free-spirited, expressive, and transformative. Set on the quayside docks amid the squalor of working-class life in 1820’s England, the narrative follows a young man as he comes of age in a rough-and-tumble profession, with music weaving the rich layers of emotional tapestry and humanity. Drawing from the musical elements of contrapuntal Bach, minimalistic Philip Glass, blues and Irish folk music, the production creates an experience of story and music that is deeply moving and truly unique.
