Opera & Animation Workshop
3. May 2017, 10:00 - 13:00
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until 5. May 2017
Only with preregistration.
In this workshop which will be given by illustrator, animator, and founding member of the theatre group “1927” Paul Barritt the participants deal with the possibilities of animation in regard to theatre and opera dramaturgy. How can animation be used to expand the art form of opera? How do you create interaction between opera singers, actors and animation live on stage? Which steps lead to a first draft for an opera & animation production? The workshop is based on the book “L’Écume des jours” (Froth on the Daydream/Foam of the Daze) by Boris Vian which has been adapted for an opera by the Russian composer Edison Denisov. During the three-day workshop the participants develop concepts, story boards and sketches for scenes of Edison Denisov’s opera adaption. It is planned to exhibit the results of the workshop on occasion of the revival of the opera “L’Écume des jours” at the Oper Stuttgart in July 2017.
