OMA - Operatic Mass Actions

Free street opera in central Aarhus


Operatic Mass Actions intervene in the urban space of Aarhus we aim to emancipate the genre of opera from the grand institutions and their stages.

Operatic mass actions will be performed in places where people go about their everyday business and people will be involved actively. In this way the audience will become co-creators of the work and the relation between work and contemporary human beings will generate meaning and significance.

Whether it is in the café environment by the creek of Aarhus, in the foyer of the theatre or in the commercial pedestrian streets, there will be created a meta-staging of our present life conditions seen through complex artistic filters, and this will take place on the terms of the urban space. It includes self-build instruments, collectives, new singing techniques, noise, visuals, and high-tech interactive elements and a performing ensemble.

OMA is part of Capital of Culture 2017 and ILT17.

Opera Brunch

AUT – Aarhus Unge Tonekunstnere inviterer til opera brunch


HVOR
Kedlen, Godsbanen, Skovgaardsgade 3, 8000 Aarhus C.

PANELDEBAT
Der bliver eksperimenteret intenst med opera som kunstform i disse år.
Det er et had-/kærlighedsforhold, hvor de unge kunstnere griber “gesamtkunstwerk”-ideen og skaber nye hybride, provokerende og rørende fortællinger om menneskelivet.
AUT har under projektet coOPERAtion i perioden 2012-2017 inviteret en lang række unge kunstnere til at give deres bud på gentænkning af opera som kunstform.
Med udgangspunkt i dette praksisbaserede udviklingsforløb inviterer vi til en uformel og passioneret drøftelse af opera og kunst i det offentlige rum. Vores paneldeltagere vil give samtalen et internationalt perspektiv og sætte projektet ind i en større kontekst.

PANELDELTAGERE
Arnbjörg Danielsen: Grundlægger og kunstnerisk leder af Far North, Island.
Holger Bergmann: Direktør for Fonds Darstellende Künste, Tyskland.
Erik Exe Christoffersen: Lektor ved Afdeling for Dramaturgi, AU.
