15.05.2023 – Beyond Opera – Ways and Forms of New Music Theatre
On the occasion of the premiere of “Fundstadt“, a discussion panel with Brigitte Heusinger (Theater Bremen), Uta Plate & Duri Collenberg (Hiatus), Vendula Novakova (Netzwerk Freies Musiktheater), Dr. Christian Esch (NRW KULTURsekretariat / NOperas!), moderated by Roland Quitt, will take place at Theater Bremen on 4 June, 11:00 am.
Music theatre – can it be anything other than opera, operetta and musical? In fact, for some time now, there have been a wide variety of paths beyond these classical narrative forms. They can hardly be lumped together, yet they have important things in common. What is this “new musical theatre”? Where does it come from? Does it pursue a particular agenda? And, if we need it at all, why is it still not easy for it to find acceptance in the municipal theatre?
Together and with the audience, on the occasion of Bremen’s third NOperas! premiere, senior music theatre dramaturg Brigitte Heusinger, Christian Esch from NOperas! / Fonds Experimentelles Musiktheater, Vendula Novakova from the Netzwerk Freies Musiktheater and the production team of “Fundstadt”.
An event in the framework of NOperas! and the “Netzwerk Freies Musiktheater”. Supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of NEUSTART KULTUR.
