Bent Outta Shape
The visual and musical design become one in this creatively pieced together working of Elgar's Enigma Variations. How many different ways could Elgar manipulate his main theme to create interesting music? So then imagine the possibilities of ways to visually "bend" a drill set, pose at odd angles, use distorted props, or alter the look of the field altogether in this show. This was the inspiration for Bent Outta Shape. With fresh arrangements that weave six movements of "Enigma" into one seamless production, the genius of Elgar's maneuvering of his main theme provides the perfect soundtrack for the bends and twists of the band on the field. And of course, some bending of major chords and pit effects help to get the point across as well. This Bent Outta Shape combination of timeless classical themes with modern innovation will surely be a hit with your students, audiences, and judges alike!
