Presented by Chopt Logic; Performed by Tina Mitchell; Violin: Helen Yee; Directed by Pirronne Yousefzade
Chopt Logic was formed in 2002 in Adelaide South Australia by theater artist, Tina Mitchell. Its inaugural production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was the sellout hit of the 2003 Barossa Vintage Festival. The success of this production led to the company being commissioned by the Barossa International Music Festival to produce Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus. This acclaimed production was the draw card of the 2003 Barossa Music Festival. Chopt Logic was subsequently invited back to the Barossa Music Festival in 2004, to present the Australian premiere of David Rudkin’s translation of Genet’s The Maids. The company’s last work produced in Australia was Madeleine George’s The Most Massive Woman Wins, which had several successful seasons, including an in-schools tour for the Australian Festival for Young People.
Tina Mitchell and is now reforming the company in New York City with Australian stage director Paul Peers. He brings a decade of experience working in American regional opera and New York down-town theatre scene. Both artists are alumni of the Centre for the Performing Arts in Adelaide (Now, Adelaide College of Arts) and have developed a reputation for presenting highly physical work with original live music. Tina and Paul also conduct physical theatre workshops in Australia and the United States. In the fall of 2012 Chopt Logic will be artist in residence at New York’s innovative theater space 3 Legged Dog Art and Technology Center. They will begin the second stage of development of a chamber opera about Mata Hari in collaboration with Brooklyn based composer Matt Marks.
Chopt Logic’s mission is to:
- Create highly physical, interdisciplinary live performance works.
- Present works that respond to women’s role in contemporary culture.
- Train artists in physical performance.
- Foster international collaboration.
