OPERA of ENTROPY
Postdramatic music theatre by Jorge Sánchez-Chiong and Thomas J. Jelinek
A co-production of NOMAD.theatre and MUSIKTHEATERTAGE WIEN, in cooperation with mediaOpera, Tanzquartier Wien and ZENTRALWERK Dresden.
A post-dramatic music theatre of negotiating our present against the world crisis scenario of disintegration, along the narrative lines of authentic characters.
We make history every day, each of us creates reality. Every minute.
Entropy increases every second. Disorder, discontinuity, disinformation, dissolution and disintegration create concrete entropic phenomena. Destabilisation of Europe, the social fabric, corruption, climate change, suicide bombers, war create depression, ADHD in young people, disorientation, burnout, weakness in decision-making. People are becoming increasingly involved, but just as many are taking refuge in repression and the fun society.
In an interactive installation that creates a communicative and musical resonance space through the active presence of the audience, a fractal of our present is created. A contemporary opera.
