Covering a broad scope of instrument types and sound-propogating principles, these innovative instruments go beyond the traditional to explore new ways of creating music. As the sculptures are animated by the performers, they become live kinetic art elements for theatrics and spectacle.

the Moore in Seattle
STG Presents Lelavision's Heavy Metal DëVices at the Moore Theatre in Seattle on December 14 & 15, 2013. Over the past twenty years, Lelavision co-director, Ela Lamblin, has devised over twenty odd archetypal metal devices that can be used in all manner of surprising ways. This performance brings together these peculiar devices with human collaborators including choreographer Leah Mann, composer Jason Staczek, and director AJ Epstein. "We are planning to fill the newly renovated Moore Theater with big objects as likely to flip a body 16' in the air on a steel pyramid as they are to produce exotic melodies that would sooth the wildest child or the staunchest art critic." says Ela. Some spin, some rock, some fly, some are worn as costumes. Some are bowed, some honk, some sing, some are hit, some crash. All the contraptions are equally at home as apparatus for contemporary dance and physical theater as they are as devices for ambient musical transport. When these objects are brought to life with sound and action the results are like mind-boggling hallucinations that elicit awe and curiosity. Lelavision co-director and choreographer Leah Mann has spent the past 20 years working closely with Ela and his objects to create performances in which the playing of these contraptions is a fluidly formed collaboration of bodies becoming one with objects to generate patterns of movement and sound. Composer Jason Staczek (well known for his work in scoring films) is working closely with Ela and his devices to create new music that is as innovative as the instruments themselves. Director AJ Epstein will bring a fresh eye and developed theatrical sensibility to the show. In addition to this four person creative team, the stellar cast includes dancers Abby Enson and Lynelle Sjoberg, and musicians Aimee Zoe Tubbs, Arlette Moody, and Christopher Overstreet.
