    enact the story process with their feet crunching along a strip of shingle monochrome video images rippling water the ferry s painter skirling birds are projected on to the white floor and a white sail at the back Jones as ever uses the video to support not supplant the live action and the result is succinct impactful and ultimately cathartic an involving direct unforgettable performance Guardian The frontier that must be crossed from despair to hope from ignorance to enlightenment from life to death is a powerful constant in all our lives Netia Jones s outstanding new production for the Barbican Britten season places that frontier the river right down the length of the nave of St Giles Cripplegate in one of the many striking video projections that have become her imaginative trademark A revival of this production cannot come too soon Observer Imaginatively conceived sleek modern and very well sung For 75 minutes time moves at its own pace As a centenary offering this was worth waiting for Financial Times A Living Thing Los Angeles Philharmonic A concert event created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Frank Gehry s Walt Disney Concert Hall with multiple projections video installations and live film conducted by Gustavo Dudamel and featuring Yo Yo Ma a magical ringing salute LA Times Castiglioni Inverno In Ver New World Symphony Miami and Chicago In collaboration with Michael Tilson Thomas a striking video installation devised by Tilson Thomas and British director and video artist Netia Jones the video exegesis which the artist cued to the musical performance from her laptop computer seemed both a natural outgrowth of and complement to Castiglioni s icy vignettes Three clusters of various sized video screens were hung above and at the sides of the stage to display fluid closeup images of snowflakes snowscapes and at one point the silhouette of a human figure tumbling from screen to screen accompanied by piercing blasts of woodwinds I t was all extremely effective The visual and aural elements enhanced rather than detracted from each other Chicago Tribune Kafka Fragments Royal Opera House György Kurtág Linbury Theatre Not really opera scarcely music theatre yet more than a song cycle the video artist and director Netia Jones s staging of György Kurtág s Kafka Fragments is a small miracle of perfection and I hope that eventually it will travel farther than the space at the Royal Opera House where it was engendered The black and white video projections are as exquisitely crafted as the words and music There is no journey no goal no resolution here But we the bystanders are irresistibly drawn into these dances of time and their restlessness their dreams and their darkness become one with ours The Times when your director is a video artist as resourceful and inventive as Netia Jones and when your soprano has the charisma and versatility of Claire Booth you get a very heady brew Jones believes that although this work has no story it does have a structure and she has realised this with compelling force That space may be empty but it s filled with the most intense drama as Jones s light show interacts with voice body and violin Independent The staging homes in powerfully on the work s sense of alienation portraying the woman cut off from the world nervously alone with her thoughts and feelings Financial Times Aware that the work itself has no narrative Jones refuses to stage it as a monologue and separates the songs some of which last no more than a few seconds with blackouts Constraint and existential defiance are in continuous opposition this is a fine achievement mesmerising and unnerving in equal measure Guardian Marco Polo Bergen National Opera Tan Dun Bergen Festival her approach sees the principals delivering in front of a video backdrop controlled live by Jones tapping on her two Macs halfway up the stalls Atmospheric film conjures Venetian piazzas the Himalayas and finally China s Great Wall on Marco s journey Costumes are sumptuous Kubla Khan s beard fusing with a magnificent fur coat Times A visually seductive performance This stunning looking new production benefits hugely from the input of the British director designer and video artist Netia Jones Telegraph The Rise of New York Minimalism London Sinfonietta Riley Reich Glass Purcell Room Landmarks Series Webern and The Second Viennese School London Sinfonietta Webern Schoenberg Berg Purcell Room L andmarks Series Les Illuminations Scottish Ensemble Britten The evening s big innovation though was a performance of Les illuminations Britten s settings of poetry by Rimbaud with specially commissioned visuals by video artist Netia Jones There was something about the combination of Jones s glistening imagery Britten s vivid music and Rimbaud s strange proto surrealist poetry that really worked There was a practical purpose to the visuals Jones used them to supply English translations of the Rimbaud texts but her ghostly figures and sinister fairground carousels seemed entirely in keeping with the song cycle s decadent beauty The intense sharply defined playing from the Scottish Ensemble musicians only added to the spinetingling vision of the wo rk Quartet For The End Of Time London Sinfonietta Messiaen Purcell Room Landmarks Series Where The Wild Things Are Higglety Pigglety Pop Oliver Knussen Aldeburgh Festival Barbican Los Angeles Philharmonic Tangelwood Contemporary Music Festival Enter the virtuoso director designer Netia Jones with a wonderfully elegant solution live casts who interact with back projections of Sendak s drawings which Jones animates in real time Independent Netia Jones s production of Where the Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop is as much a triumph of animated film video projection and split second co ordination as of conventional theatre Knussen based both one act operas on Maurice Sendak s illustrated children s stories and Jones goes one step farther turning Sendak s memorable images into cartoons played on a screen behind the performers She has pioneered real time animation sitting at a computer desk and aligning her images note

    Actor Ian McElhinney back directed with pitch perfect precision by Netia Jones New York Times Netia Jones took an old man s prose tale and transformed it into an elusive but harrowing moment of theatre Inner turmoil was separated from outer stillness by the masterful Ian McElhinney whose physical rendition was played out to his own recorded narration The day I saw it there were buckets to catch the rain

  • where the wild things are
    stupendous staging of his Sendak inspired operatic double bill It would be easy to devote all the available space to praising Netia Jones ingenious direction and video designs in association with Lightmap With immense skill they have rendered Sendak s original drawings as live animation so the appearance is at once enchanting and familiar Fiona Maddocks Observer Few operas can be more tightly bound up with the visual images of the stories that inspired them than these Jones has understood this perfectly and having discussed her productions with Sendak she has utterly faithful to his visual world while animating it in a perfectly judged gently witty way Andrew Clements Guardian Aldeburgh has done the work proud the staging is imaginative in a collaboration with Sendak sadly cut short when he died last month Netia Jones and Lightmap have realised the classic illustrations in the form of animated video with which Max interacts Rupert Christiansen Telegraph the director and video artist Netia Jones built her production around a fantastical adaptation of Sendak s own designs making for a moving tribute thanks to her video animations the space feels bigger and boundaries are further blurred as singers interact with the storybook projections
