The Rhinoceros Opera concept was developed by
LIBRETTIST, CONCEPT and RESEARCH – Indija N Mahjoeddin
There is a whole history of collaborators that i have failed to get funding for.
I have changed personnel at times in an effort to reframe the project for different kinds of support or simply because i felt it unfair to keep stringing people along. In the end a took a team of people who were local to me with a view to facilitate easier subsequent development.
Working with me on The Rhinocerotidae: a multimedia Eco-Opera Installation:
SINGER Nela Trifkovic
TECHNICAL MEDIA DESIGNER, INSTRUMENTALIST – Stu Favilla
INSTRUMENTALIST SINGER TECHNICAL CODESIGNER – Joanna Cannon
FILM EDITER AND DOCUMENTATION – M Rusdi Antoro
LAMPUNG ORAL EPIC COMPOSER – Uzunuhir
Team 2 – Personnel for the Puppetry team
Working with me to storyboard a reframed narrative draft titled Love Song of The Singing Rhinoceros for puppetry and physical theatre :
Indija Mahjoeddin (writer)
Nigel Jamieson (dir)
Dan Potra (design)
With this team we will begin to shape the direction and aspirations for this version, write text, and visualise in storyboard form, while considering what forces will be sought to flesh out the creative team. The resulting draft will then be put out in search of a producing company/funding org willing to invest in a fuller creative development period bringing on the physical performers, puppeteers, composer, to workshop the final form.
