Extricate oneself – An Online Opera

PREMIER 1st of July 2020!!!


By using objects I deconstruct fear and traumatic emotions. The idea is to bring reality into the art and to provoke genuine bodily reactions: for example, bathing in ice to feel genuine cold and cutting onions to mark true tears.
I would like to examine the following: Is it possible to use these negative feelings for something useful and positive, by incorporating them into the art?

The opera is created in 12 parts, and every month a new section will be released for streaming.
The first episode will be premiered on July the 1st, 2020 and the last episode on June the 1st, 2021.

Part 1 – Anxiety
I. Self inflicted – II. Sacrifice
