Project Lucy

  • Post category:Projects

Project Lucy is a multidisciplinary play, that integrates music, mime, puppetry, and science. Project Lucy is the first theatre play created by multi-disciplinary music ensemble Snowapple.

For Project Lucy the band collaborates with MAPA Studio (Moving Academy of Performing Arts). The musicians of Moon Cabaret did a two year-long intensive mime-training, musicality of movement workshops and object animation masterclasses. And now they feel ready to tell stories, not only through music, but also through moving bodies and flying objects.

The play was created in collaboration with Mexican artists and has a strong focus on Women’s rights. The main goal is to raise awareness for the femicides in Mexico. Based on the book ‘Damas del Tiempo’ (women throughout time) by journalist/writer Pedro Miguel, Lucy takes you on a journey through time and space, meeting historical and mythical women along the way.

The play premiered in October at the CENART university, one of the largests Art Academies in Latin America. And has toured all over Mexico. Mainly focussing on Universities (UNAM, UAM, Tlazcala, Veracruz, Tuxtla and many more). In The Netherlands Project Lucy was performed at Studio MAPA Haarlem.
