THE NEWS is JacobTV’s most innovative and provocative work. A reality opera in which live music is synchronized with non-fiction footage from the international media, based on speech grooves.

 

The drama is constructed using broadcasts from newscasters, politicians, scientists, televangelists, athletes, movie stars and celebrities discussing a vast array of socio-political issues, from global warming to the credit crunch, as well as matters of war and peace to trivialities, thus exposing our western society’s obsession with public image, fame, catastrophe and morality.

 

With media coverage constantly changing, ruminating and updating worldwide, THE NEWS is a fresh approach to music composition, video production and social commentary through live performances. This singular and timely work, which marries conventional media material to extraordinary artistry, will engage the public in a uniquely stimulating experience; catalyst for introspection and dialogue.
