ALAN T.

A multi-genre chamber work for one female singer, one actor (male), five musicians and audiovisual apparatus

The chamber work Alan T. is based on the life of the mathematician Alan Turing. His was a paradoxical life, in which critical trajectories both scientific and social were to collide, to violent effect. Turing was an unsung hero of the Second World War: father of artificial intelligence, a mathematical genius and yet ultimately a casualty of the puritanical England of his time, as a result of his self-confessed homosexuality. Alan Turing ended his life marginalized and excluded from society, a recluse living in a one-bedroom apartment where he died at the age of 42 in circumstances yet to be fully explained.
