cross-disciplinary opera

Op. 1: homo faber is a hybrid work, a musical-visual project that breaks down the boundaries between disciplines and aims to create a space for opening up thoughts, perceptions, experiences. The performance combines different forms of expression: the performance of various jobs and tasks, singing, words, images; their changing fusion creates different levels of meaning.

Old man and the sea

opera premiere

The Old Man and the Sea seeks to understand the meaning of life, death of the people and things. Starting point is in an intimate - an ancient - an eternal companion: the personal fear of / against ageing. Santiago is a priest of time, a timeless monument of power of the will which defeats an age.  The project is a meditation on his willpower replacing the power of the flesh; and on wisdom, pride and humility replacing the arrogance of youth as the victory of the spiritual will.
