Margaret Williams Theatre
2039 John F Kennedy, Jersey City
This event was pieced together by the French composer-scenographer Jean-François Alcoléa who brings to life the cinematographic works of George Méliès.
Georges Méliès was a French illusionist, film director, inventive pioneer, emblematic and brilliant entertainer who, in a few short years, revealed the extent of his visionary genius. Turner Classic Movies (TCM) calls Méliès a “cine-magician.” While others have nicknamed him the “Creator of Cinematic Spectacle.”
Right in the Eye — inspired by Méliès multiple universes — combines music and sound composition, lighting, still images, and moving pictures to introduce audiences to a new immersive experience. The show features a trio of skilled musicians performing their instruments live as Méliès films are projected behind them — Enchanting/captivating viewers with a show within a show, as the artists conjure music from an extraordinary array of instruments. Right in the Eye adds a wealth of timbres, sounds and musical colors to a mesmerizing score along with a collection of unexpected sound effects that expertly evoke the technical wizardry, hilarity, and stream of invention imparted upon cinema by Méliès.
