The Saffron Green
A Space Opera in three movements written for voice, walkie talkie, megaphone and radio composed by Geneva Skeen and Mathew Timmons (radio score by Garrick Hogg, Andrew Lessman and Max Mayer). Employing a minimal modular score The Saffron Green brings together multiple analog technologies to explore the concept of both an outer space opera and an opera in public space. Taking the structure of a space opera and bringing it to street level, The Saffron Green borrows liberally from sci-fi operatic soundscapes and matches it with protest chants from the "Arab Spring" revolts. The People Want to Topple, The People Want to Overthrow, The People Demand the Fall. The performance will extend throughout Chinatown, using Human Resources as a staging ground and as home base from 5:30-7:00 pm and culminating on, in and above Chung King Road performed by a group of roughly 30 people from 7:15-7:45 pm.

You are invited to see The Saffron Green, the performance before the performance, the staging of the work as a work in and of itself at Human Resources from 5:30-7:00 pm as the performers ready themselves, get into costume, tune their radios, ready the walkie talkies and the bullhorns and warm up their voices. Then join us in walking over to Chung King Road for the performance from 7:15-7:45 pm for Perform Chinatown! on July 30.

Composed by Geneva Skeen and Mathew Timmons
