Says Devin: “So closing in on eight months of work, we’re almost finished with The Retinal Circus!
“It’s been a huge amount of work for everyone, from the show, down to DVD and Blu-ray authoring, artwork, logistics (not to mention the show itself!), but we’re almost there, and when watched in its entirety, it’s really a heck of an experience!
“To tie you over until it’s out, here’s a clip of the song ‘Grace’. t’s out of context, obviously, but hopefully gives you a vague idea of what’s about to come out.
“It’s been a ton of work for everybody and we’re really quite proud of it… When the final products have been produced, we’ll let you know!”
Devin previously described The Retinal Circus as “a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a ‘circus’ of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music.”
This three-hour performance included:
* A retrospective of Devin Townsend’s entire career
* Full choir and theatrical cast
* Visual and aural enhancements unlike any show Devin has done to date
* Several special guests
* Circus and carnival performances and cast
* Art exhibit of Devin’s albums, including explanations of each album
