RSVP XXII: ‘Wine – A Whimsical Commentary’

RSVP XXII: ‘Wine – A Whimsical Commentary’

Experimental/Perf. Art
The Cal Poly Music Department student production ensemble RSVP will stage the multi-layered production. This year’s show celebrates electroacoustic diversity, compositional risk and all things viniferous. Lighthearted on the surface, the story follows a wine tour group’s experience at a winery. But the production is all an allegory of more serious fare — the importance, even sacredness of what we share, particularly special food and drink. The show promises to be, as its title implies, whimsical, comedic, entertaining, and fanciful. At once, it revels in and mocks aspects of wine culture. The show includes music and dance and theatre from an extremely wide variety of styles. “This is an intentional attempt to push the concert goers from the safe, obvious moorings of the surface story line,” says Antonio G. Barata, artistic director of the RSVP series. “It keeps people guessing, wondering what might come next, and makes them think beyond a simplistic interpretation.” The music, soundscape and staging combine the creativity of students in Barata’s Sound Design classes with the choreography of Diana Stanton, a Theatre and Dance Department faculty member, and the students in her dance classes.
