Buffalo Gals Won't You Come Out Tonight

Silvia Costa, Andrea Belfi, Wojtek Blecharz & Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop2024

In its new production, Kaleidoskop, together with director Silvia Costa and composers Andrea Belfi and Wojtek Blecharz, embarks on a journey to sonically and visually depict the different worlds of Ursula J. Le Guin's eponymous short story.

Buffalo Gals Won't You Come Out Tonight tells the story of Myra, a girl who loses an eye in an accident, is rescued by a magical coyote, and brought to a village full of talking animals. In a ritual ceremony, she is given a coyote eye. From then on, she sees and understands two worlds simultaneously: that of the animals and the human world, torn between different perceptions.

*Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight?
Come out tonight, Come out tonight?
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,
And dance by the light of the moon.

As I was walking down the street,
Down the street, down the street,
A pretty gal I chance to meet
Under the silvery moon.*

Le Guin's stories explore non-linear narrative patterns that challenge our familiar world. Her characters expand our notions of identity attribution and perception. This utopian potential is ideal for a collaborative musical and theatrical experiment. Where do mythology and science fiction intersect? And what might a new utopian world sound like, where the boundaries between human and animal blur?
