Philip Glass opera scene | december 2014


This video project made by Máté Szilvay in collaboration with 12 singers from Soharóza aims to rethink the opening scene of Philip Glass’ opera Einstein on the Beach. While the visuals reinforce the conveyor belt-like technicism and uniformity of repetitive music, the text recited in prose seeks after the possibilities of freedom in chaos.
