Via Intolleranza II

_A project by Christoph Schlingensief

June 12 – 14, 2010 | 7:15 pm | Arsenal Probebühne 2

Christoph Schlingensief’s opera village project in Burkina Faso, entitled Remdoogo, is a highly impressive global arts project that brings different worlds together and removes the dividing line between art and life. Work started in January 2010 to create the opera village on around 14 hectares of land close to Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, comprising schools, film and music classrooms, rehearsal rooms, a hotel, a stage, a hall, a café, a restaurant, offices, workshops, housing, a football pitch, agricultural land and an infirmary.
Christoph Schlingensief is now using and exploring this enlightened piece of European cultural history and researching precisely what happens to Nono’s work when it is shifted to an African context. "Intolleranza 1960" is, so to say, the starting point that provides the material for Christoph Schlingensief’s production Via Intolleranza II – the first piece of African opera village utopia to come to Europe. It is not a production by the opera village, but an accompanying piece of research.

Production: Festspielhaus Afrika gGmbH; Coproduction: Kampnagel Hamburg, Kunstenfestivaldesarts Brussels, Bavarian State Opera Munich, Burgtheater Vienna, Impulstanz and the Wiener Festwochen.
