PERFORMANCES FROM OUR PARTICIPATORY PRODUCTIONS
In our participatory youth projects, Utoperas, Opera Lab and Dance Lab, new productions are developed with children and young people, which will be presented in different formats and locations in spring 2022. During the lockdown, the projects will continue online. We will inform you about the performance dates!
Impressions from our past projects:
Utoperas - A youth (chat) opera in series format
More online, less alone? Inspired by themes from Yevgeny Zamyatin's dystopian sci-fi novel We, 40 students from the Neue Mittelschulen Josef-Enslein Platz and Herzgasse in Favoriten have spent the last few months developing their own participatory youth opera with artists from the Vienna State Opera and Superar. In three episodes, the work Utoperas tells pictures of a dystopian future of an almost totalitarian online world, which shows the conflictual clash of the collective vs. the individual on the basis of a young triangular relationship and relentlessly asks questions about visibility and invisibility.
In Utoperas, young amateurs are also on stage for the first time together with two artists from the Young Artist Program of the Vienna State Opera, Anna Nekhames and Angelo Pollak.
The youth ensemble will be accompanied by the Vienna State Opera's stage orchestra.
