The Obscure Thoughts of Isabella Green

A musical multimedia performance by Dyane Donck based on the graphic novel by Eileen Whisker.

In a quest on the border of reality and illusion that touches the rough edges of existence and explores the dark corners of the soul, Evelien plays the role of Isabella Green.

Utilising cutting edge electronica, vocals and droning bronze in a decor of wonderful film noir- and graphic novel projections, Dyane Donck creates a hallucinatory musical hybrid of dark experimentalism and prog rock a la Pink Floyd in a theatrical setting that invokes the gloomy, enigmatic story lines of David Lynch.
