Gyre Project

Mission

Powerless or Empowered

The many challenges we are faced with may leave us feeling powerless. How shall we overcome this feeling of powerlessness? Poetry - music - art are the media we humans have used since times immemorial to transform and uplift the state of our spirit.

Action
We gain our energy from nature, from our contact with the elemental forces. Water is the element connecting all life forms, through its intricate rhythmic patterns. The Gyre Project is a trans medial art work which immerses us in the flowing energy of water. We call it Manga Opera.

Gyre Project is the work of:
Nadine Rennert - visual artist - sculptor
Antony Hequet - poet - composer - singer

Our Manga Opera will be given in various locations around the world connected with water...

Generosity
This contemporary opera will be given for free. We have already dedicated much time and effort to the project; we also put an impressive amount of personal tools at the disposal of the project (List upon demand). The work in progress has already seen several versions, and is still under development.

We already have supporters, in particular, the Communauté de Communes du Pays de Gex, which have commissioned us to give three performances at Fort L’écluse, a fort built into the mountainside overshadowing the Rhône a few miles downstream from Geneva. Nevertheless, in order to continue developing the project, we are now calling out for your support and generosity. Let us be grand and uplift the Spirit together.

The Work left to do
The writing of the Saga is underway, yet much remains to be done to finish the full story. This is a specific part of the work you may support. As a Patron you will get to read the chapters, as well as the poem/ incantations, as soon as Antony completes them and way before others discover them in the unfolding of the Saga…

The same applies to the composition of the music. As the musical ideas are developed, they will be published on Soundcloud with a private access code, released only to our generous Patrons.

Nadine has done a lot of work with masks, banners, watercolor paintings, nevertheless, much is left to complete in particular: costumes, sculptures...

We want to include video material and have begun capturing images of water in its various forms and discovering how to use this material in our performance.

Collective poetic actions
We are also offering a series of collective poetic actions, where we experiment some of our concepts in order to develop the Manga Opera:
- group incantations facing water expanses,
- all night trance concerts where you are invited to free your wild spirit: dance, play percussion instruments, let out your voice…
- intimate concerts in natural spaces with extended public participation.

Very Generous and ambitious people - sponsors
Feel free to invite us to other locations around the world for a collective immersive experience tailored to the location and participants.
