A CUT A SCRATCH A SCORE: A Comic Opera in Three Parts is a distinctive new performance and exhibition to be presented in three different public spaces in Dundee. Combining opera, comedy, drawings, sculpture and moving images, this daring work will act as a stage for the city and its people, upon which the comedies of contemporary life will strut, turn and take a bow.
Developed through a close collaboration between David Barnett, Sam Belinfante and Bruce McLean, the project will widen its pool of authors over its five days to include the public and the city itself. As the artists themselves say âIt is not enough to merely co-exist. This project is truly collaborative -- it has developed through dialogue and co-authorship'. This collaborative focus presents a timely and cogent politics for all of us, a politics that is âto the left, to the right and in the middle'.
