Fearful Symmetries delves into the heart of our increasingly hectic and eclectic society as it engages with the music of the same name by American composer John Adams that, according to Adams, gives the “impression of continuous movement over a shifting landscape.” With that as a springboard, Campanella juxtaposes his own experience as a young immigrant arriving to Canada from Italy to the current generation of young artists, and examines the influence of urban aesthetics and pop culture on both.
Premiered in 2016 at the Fleck Theatre, Toronto.
