MEXICO AURA: THE MYTH OF POSSESSION


MUSIKTHEATER VON DIANA SYRSE (MUSIK), EVA HIBERNIA UND JOHN VON DÜFFEL (TEXTE), CHRISTOPHER ROMAN (INSZENIERUNG) UND ZAFRAAN ENSEMBLE

In a museum, at night. A curator receives an enigmatic applicant. Is she an artist or a political activist? Outside, fires burn. – Garbage dumps in Mexico. 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”.
As the first music theater in the newly opened Humboldt Forum, an international team of artists from Mexico, Spain, Germany and others stage a fantastic and intricate journey into our global present. A story in music and bodies about myths, a vase (exhibited in the Ethnological Museum of the Humboldt Forum), about the longing for the divine and about violence, power and new colonialism. With music by the young composer Diana Syrse (MEX/D), with texts by Eva Hibernia (ES) and John von Düffel (D) and choreo-directed by Christopher Roman (USA/D).
