Sing the Body Electric!

A work that celebrates the human capacity to change her conditions and envision a new world with poetry and music. In embodied songs, opera singers perform new and old music with custom-built sensor technology in a space charged with voices and with musical wires strung from floor to ceiling. The work is a crossover between opera, oratorio and choreography – where the movement of bodies creates accompaniment and visual components.
