The project will reportedly blend cinematography, performance art, music and 3D environments for a sensory digital-theatre experience. The piece will be a set-piece and will span 25 minutes in which the audience will be submerged in a hyperreality. The story is said to follow an intimate look into the love story of Luna, who will be played by George Maple herself and Sol, who Barrett's role will occupy.
"Jordan and I first worked together on the video for my title track Lover (2017) from my debut solo album. We’ve remained close since. I knew when writing Myth that the male lead needed to be somebody who’s comfortable enough to explore their full range of emotions on set and on camera," says singer-songwriter and producer Maple of Barrett's character in a press release.
Barrett landed back in Australia only a week ago and has expressed his excitement towards the upcoming production, "It’s so nice to be back in Australia and to be working with George Maple again on this project," the actor and model stated in a press release. He will begin a four-day filming schedule for Myth once he is let out of quarantine (we're guessing) from November 22 ahead of the global premiere of the production at the Sydney Opera House.
The last time we caught up with cover star Barrett, he told us, "My imagination is more than you could handle in 25 words or less." which we can only anticipate he will utilise for his role as Sol. His latest on-screen work aside from Myth, includes a recent short film titled Love Sick, which Barrett both starred in and produced alongside writer and director, Mees Peijenburg, which debuted on NOWNESS on November 11.
Tickets for Myth are available to purchase via the Sydney Opera House website.
