Endless Pleasures - Der Singende Kopf

Watch on Vimeo

Der Singende Kopf is an experimental opera fragment by Marc Sinan with a libretto by Maike Wetzel and resembles one third of the Endless Pleasures triology. The piece is based on Ovids epilogue on the story of Orpeus and Euridike and the Chinese Opera The Peony Pavilion.
For the performance the stage was transformed into an immersive room on the edge between reality and virtuality, resembling Orpheus way between life and death. The four by four grid of vertical light poles react in realtime to the performance of the partly improvising musicians, while the reflections of the light sculpture beutifully reflect on the stage floor, which was completely covered with mirror foil.

First performance at Radialsystem Berlin on April 6th, 2019
