Isolde

8-12 July 2019, pedestrian zone in front of the Kunsthalle Munich: There, a homeless person appears in the midst of lustfully shopping, well dressed people. In the hopelessness of her existence, she transfigures everything ordinary into art. Sounds from her memory fit into an orchestration of the urban sound space. Everything she hears becomes a global song in which, like Wagner's Isolde, she finds redemption through death and resurrection in love.

Inside MPhil – St. Nikolai

With the free app "INSIDE MPHIL - St. Nikolai" you can experience the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra virtually on the meadow behind the church of St. Nikolai near the Munich Gasteig as if the musicians were set up there. With the GPS-connected smartphone and headphones you enter the orchestra acoustically and hear the instruments as if you were standing next to them, just as the musicians hear themselves and their colleagues: the violins, the oboe, the timpani or whatever you want to hear. This is made possible by the sophisticated smartphone app.

Return to Reims

Didier Eribon's book of the same name was published in German in 2016 and quickly became a bestseller. The resulting debate about the socially "dependent", who are overflowing to the right-wing camp, continues to be lively. In the theatre version by director Thomas Jonigk we bring Eribon's hybrid narrative between sociological study, emotional-biographical narrative of a boy growing up in a homophobic environment and pure poetry to the stage of Schauspiels Köln.

The sound within the orchestra

The sound impression for the musician in the orchestra is clearly different from the sound impression of the audience. Not only the instruments, but the entire body of sound is designed to resonate with the concert hall and enter into a symbiotic connection with the room. As a listener in the hall, one hears the result of this complex connection. Is it possible to let a listener hear the sound of the musician within the orchestra through media?

Music theatre and Digitality

The change from linearity to non-linearity associated with digitalization is accompanied by a change in the perception of art and culture. We now have the chance to shape our co-existence with the algorithms, not only socially and politically, but also artistically.

About Life in Demmin

Martin Farkas shows a city left alone with its history. His film tells a completely uneducated and open story of fear, peer pressure and historical trauma, xenophobia, false mourning and the political abuse of emotions. And it shows how strongly the present is connected with the past.

As the worlds first Augmented Reality opera, MAYA staged the former heating plant Munich-Aubing as a historic site.
