Mexico Aura. Mythen von Besitz und Besessenheit

Musiktheater von Syrse / Hibernia / von Düffel / Roman und Zafran Ensemble

In a museum, at night. A curator receives an enigmatic applicant. Is she an artist or a political activist? Fires are burning outside. The journalist Claas Relotius reports live from everyday life in Mexico, from border militias and Mayan rites. – In the museum, a man with a dog’s head sings about his wife, whom he has been searching for for centuries. – Claas Relotius takes us to the “Museum of the Future”.

Five dancers, three singers and the musicians of the Zafraan Ensemble take us on a fantastic and intricate journey into our global present. With music by the young composer Diana Syrse (MEX/D), texts by Eva Hibernia (ES) and John von Düffel (D) and staged by Christopher Roman (USA/D).
