With: SHE SHE POP and a choir of local delegates – Galia Borissova, Silvya Stanoeva, Tsveta Baliyska, Willy Prager, Stefan A. Shtereff, Bratan Bratanov and the musicians Rossen Zahariev-Roko – trumpet and Nikola Petrov – vibraphone; translation on stage: Plamen Harmandjiev and Svetoslava Todorova.
Property changes consciousness. It divides friends, gives one person power over others and excludes. Property is taken for granted. And people don’t talk about it. Nothing is so constitutive of our society, or our lives together; nothing has such a divisive effect on our community as property.
Together with each choir of local delegates and the audience, She She Pop will start a discussion on property and examine their own relationship to ownership, the distribution of goods and its related problems. Inspired by Brecht’s Lehrstücktheorie, they develop rules of their own for a dialogical theatre show.
After the first showing in Hannover ORATORIO sets off on a tour of Europe to Lublin and ACT
Festival, Sofia, to gather impressions from different economic microcosms and evolve into a great multi-voice meditation.
