TRICKSTER at WORM-UBIK, Rotterdam
Premiere of an ‘ad-lib’ performance deconstructing the opera medium.
Date: Saturday, May 19 at 20:30h
Place: Worm -UBIK, Rotterdam
HEROPERA is an improvised, ad-lib performance deconstructing the opera medium and challenging traditional ideas about heroism and storytelling. Sparked by speculative fiction and rooted in various disciplines, TRICKSTER plays around with the cultural and visual codes of opera, practicing the relational, the messy, the spontaneous, the unpredictable. Instead of tragic heroines who sacrifice or annihilate themselves, this opera stages five women who can conjure up something on the spot, and are not afraid of not knowing (yet). While venturing into a post-normal future, they are collaboratively and simultaneously the actors, singers, writers, scenographers, composers and technicians of this show.
