In 2021, The Chamber Music Society of Mississauga commissioned me to create an event for their 2022 season. The show involved an adaptation of works for piano solo, to be accompanied by a public screening of Carl Th. Dreyer's classic silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928). The event debuted on June 11, 2022 at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga, Ontario. Musical selections include works by post-minimalist composers, Philip Glass, Ludovico Einaudi and Max Richter.
The Passion of Joan of Arc runs for ninety-seven minutes (20fps version known as "The Oslo Cut") and is rated PG. The event requires a piano, a projector and a screen on which to project the film. No amplification is required. This event is suitable for both large and intimate film viewing spaces.
