Germany, Austria, Switzerland
An interactive, first-person music theater video game essay by Michael v. zur Mühlen based on the opera "opera opera! revenants&revolutions" with music by Ole Hübner and texts by Thomas Köck. Far in the future and after a severe catastrophe, a choir of last people with partial amnesia is in conversation with itself and a cyborg. It is about collective agency, future prognoses, the collapse of the public sphere as we know it and emerging utopias.
