Recently awarded the 2011 Ivey Award for "Best Overall Performance," The 7-Shot Symphony is an explosive mix of performing arts, live music, and unbridled imagination. Completely tipping the scales of creative ingenuity, this mash-up of epic myths and gritty cowboys has wowed audiences from Minneapolis to Miami. Seven actors portray over 45 characters with the ferocity of a Spaghetti Western film come-to-life. The show is scored by bluegrass band Tree Party whose live soundtrack puts a fresh twist on ol' timey chug-a-chugs.
Performed without set or props, The 7-Shot Symphony places focus on the actors' bare ability to illuminate a world of richly filled images "in such the way that Quentin Tarantino would decide to stage a play." Hailed as "avant-garde for the masses," The 7-Shot Symphony intertwines seven classic myths from around the world against the backdrop of America's epic Old West, a setting of superhuman strength, heroism, and comeuppance. Mayor "Gil" (-gamesh) oversees the territory, Sheriff Odin enforces the peace, and Fenrir the Outlaw, known only as "the Wolf," wreaks havoc. Other locals include Orpheus the Saloon Piano Player, Masamune the Gunsmith, Anansi (a.k.a. Spider the Gambler), and Hades, owner of the infamous outlaw hangout, "The Underworld Saloon." As epic themes feed mythic tales, The 7-Shot Symphony swells with stories fueled by fate, duty, love, legend, and corruption that stems from power, revealing their relevance today. Creating visually entertaining and emotionally insightful storytelling, Live Action Set builds upon its roots in dance, continues its tradition of physical theater, and infuses elements borrowed from cinematography, Italy's Commedia dell'Arte, and France's trateau traditions, and Saturday morning cartoons.
