DRÅPERA CHALLENGES CONTEMPORARY OPERA

Ett Ansikte (A face) will be performed for the first time on September 22 at Lilla scenen at the Gothenburg opera.
The performance takes us through a complex family history, an inheritance that is reproduced throughout the generations. It also deals with the will to break free. On stage we find a daughter, a mother, different in age as well as time, and a house that is awakening.
These events happen simultaneously and the music creates its sounds from the scenography and the(se) movements. These sounds elongate, filter and heighten what is expressed. Ett Ansikte is born out of a process where text, music, scenography and action have all been produced in parallel and together create a whole.

Dates of performance are 22, 28, 29th of September.
