Offhandopera

Adhoc text music format for voices & instruments, solo / choral

The Offhandopera Ensemble Berlin and other contributors invent, speak, sing and play.
Director: Reinhard Gagel

“A white space / White is the color of innocence / The Uninhabitable – the architecture of contempt / Give me the cold hand, Luise / You are all white in the face / We know everything and can forget it immediately / Protective suit: Color white / Everything knew everything knows / we make soft butter from white milk / Am I still connected or falling out? / white-washing.”
Weiß-Raum is a musical-dramatic collage of various texts and music elements, of prose and poetry around the color white.

The offhand opera is a format of spontaneous invention and performance. It is orientated to the rituals of the opera, without wanting to be one. It is not based on a musical model, only on a libretto as a starting point. It is invented and performed at the moment and can be heard and seen as a collective creation only once.

Admission free, donations welcome
