Documentary film maker Felix Hentschel accompanied the production of the Mixed-Reality-Techno-Opera MAYA and held talks with the artists involved. The resulting film (ca. 40 min) illuminates the development of the Maya character and provides insights into the conception of the music and the design of the MAYA augmented reality app.

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

Through the AR-app on the own smartphone, the spectator betook himself in the perspective of a new civilization in the distant future, and looked back in amazement on the demise of our current civilization in the near future.

Singer Martina Koppelstetter took on the role of „Maya“. She was on a mission. Would she manage to rescue the Cyberspace and with it herself and the humanity?
