Where is the meeting point between audience and performers in the frame of opera? How invisible should be the forth wall to experience individual perception of opera not loosing the power and collectivity of it? Play with spatial awareness in close relation with singers, musicians and light crosses the boundaries of opera in terms of reclaiming the core of this historical art form. Interactive opera performance has been created in collaboration with the composer Magnus Bunnskog who wrote the music piece Del estancamiento de la libido en el yo.
Each audience member had possibility to sit opposite of one of the singers, musicians and get individual versus collective experience of the opera.
