ABOUT THE OPERA
Inspired by medieval morality plays, Loose, Wet, Perforated is the tale of “Loose” and “Wet,” who undergo various contests to climb rank in their Guild. Through good deeds and intentions one descends to isolation and despair, and the other rises to fame and fortune by way of ruthlessness and violence.
FROM THE COMPOSER
Loose, Wet, Perforated is a contemporary version of the medieval morality play, full of all the moral relativism which that implies. A kaleidoscope of genres -tragedy, comedy, self-reflexive farce, academic treatise, cheap erotica -it endeavors to make sense of a post-ethical, post-analytical world.
