Dreams of Electric Sheep: Der singende Kopf

Opernfraktal

Even one's own death, in the digital context, marks only the threshold of a new world: on the second evening of the festival, the chamber opera "Der singende Kopf" (the singing head) by Marc Sinan tells of a dynamic, new kingdom of heaven. Is the Internet the key to eternal love? "The singing head" is based on Ovid's epilogue to the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. This contemporary version tells of closeness and distance, of virtual sex and dating apps, of lucky numbers in turbo-capitalism and the endless up and down of the computer mouse. This world and the beyond are seen as metaphors for reality and virtuality in the context of this stage production. On stage, the multimedia collective schnellebuntebilder realises an immersive space that fuses reality and virtuality. Renowned musicians and singers from China and Europe and a puppeteer convey traditional musical and mythological motifs from their home countries into the present. "L'Orfeo" and a collection of Chinese songs thus morph into prospects of a new, eternal life. You can find the combined ticket here: https://radialsystem.reservix.de/p/reservix/event/1361003

Dreams of Electric Sheep - An utopian festival

Marc Sinan Company & Guests

What awaits us in the digital paradise? This and other questions are pursued in the second part of the festival "Dreams of Electric Sheep", the first part of which dealt with dystopic aspects of digitization, held at Radialsystem in December 2018. Over two days, the trans-media festival, in a mixture of different genres, media and disciplines, presents utopian perspectives on cyber prosthetics, online literature circles and the enchantment of virtual worlds. On the evening of the first day of the festival, author Nataly Bleuel, together with Internet experts, will once again explore central questions of digitalization in the musical theatre talk show "#WTF 3000" - followed by a party with DJ / musician Paul Frick. On the second evening, the Marc Sinan Company together with the Ensemble ConTempo Beijing will premiere the chamber opera "Der singende Kopf" (the singing head). "The singing head" is based on Ovid's epilogue to the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. The festival is complemented by workshops with CyberRäuber (Björn Lengers and Marcel Karnapke) on virtual reality as a form of narration in theatre.
