OMONIA is a multi-sided one man art performance about desire, obsession and
the game of chance.  OMONIA brings together music, theatre, video and live
electronics.  The project results in a multimedia unity through which the
electroacoustic composition is the driving force of the performing form and
the limits of musical expression in the theatrical space become visibly
open.  The performance is the presentation of three new music theatre works,
specially composed for this project by the Dutch composers Roderik de Man
and Arnoud Noordegraaf. OMONIA is performed by the recorder
player/multimedia artist Jorge Isaac.
A virtuosic recorder performance, and a rich musical context comprised of
percussive electronic sounds, thick rhythmical structures and a grotesque
musical aesthetic make up the musical layer. Video images are used as
dynamic stage decor, as the materialisation of an evil Alter-ego, and as the
medium of hallucinatory dreams. Through the unique combination of images and
sound a combinatorial language is formed which allows for an understanding
inside of interpretation and serves to create an unnerving whole- a crisp
radiating music theatre performance.

The tour 2005-2006 includes performances in The Netherlands, Germany,
Russia, Italy and Venezuela.
