After a long hiatus, The JQ Studio, with Artistic Director Jesus Quintero is back with a brand new original work, Hour of The Wolf.
Hour of the Wolf tells the story of a man on the year anniversary of his loved one’s death. Plagued by insomnia and bouts of fitful unrest, the man’s already fragile mental state takes a turn for the worse during the hour of the wolf. Inspired by Ingmar Bergman’s film of the same title, it explains: ‘The hour of the wolf occurs between midnight and dawn. It is the hour when most people die, when sleep is deepest, when nightmares are most real. It is the hour when the sleepless are haunted by their greatest dread, when ghosts and demons are most powerful. It is the hour when most children are born.’
Hour of the Wolf is a performance that combines all of Quintero’s theatrical explorations for the last decade. It will incorporate the melancholic sounds of a live cellist, Joseph Valbrun, the profane poetry of Charles Bukowski and the delicate imagery of poet/lyricist Silvio Rodriguez. Using elements of ritualism, movement, and song, Hour of the Wolf, is more interested in creating an experience for the audience rather then putting on a show. Quintero, who wrote and performs the piece explains, “It’s not a show; It’s a happening. It’s the most personal and risky performance I’ve put on in all my years of theatre.”
