Program note –
Produced in France in 1907 by Pathe Freres,The Invisible Men” is about a wizard and his partner who create a potion that makes them invisible. After they leave, two other men break in and take the mixture and use it to steal clothes and food. They are pursued by the law, but the wizard and his partner are arrested by mistake. The wizard turns the judge and court officials into giant walking vegetables.
The Invisible Men was commissioned by Synergy Percussion in 1996 with generous financial assistance from The University of Technology, Sydney.
