~ Splash Opera ~
Here, the grotesque fable of a drifting society are inhabited by a ballerina, an old child, perched horses, a clown, train employees, a fairy, and a light-filled death wooing soldiers, at the feet of a clepsydra of traveler rats.
This event, carried by strong vocal and musical creation, navigates in a squeaky childhood amidst toy characters that don’t stand long against the disenchantment test of time our world deals us. Roles gradually disintegrate in incongruity and farce: as wills our world, maturity remains inaccessible.
Baroque opera, somewhat misguided, derailed in grand splashings, in fractures, joys and unexpected tomorrows; of the opera, we’ve kept only the essentials: water and rats.
On our shared planet, waters will rise and waters will lack. In this hard-truth paradox, ilotopie creates ” Splash Opera”, a new aquatic show already performed 10 times in South Korea, before more than 100,000 spectators.
