Electra ‘21

The live experience consists of the overall experience of the music, four simultaneously running - partly hybrid - documentaries and an installation. The audience decides for itself: The visitors can move, sit or stand in this liquid staging installation and direct their attention to whatever captivates them at the moment. In doing so, everyone perceives more than one thing at the same time. This show installation moves away from the one-dimensional seeing of the 19th century and offers the audience the polydimensional seeing, which corresponds much more to the complexity of our epoch. A new kind of live experience.

Electra - a timeless thriller. The father sacrifices the eldest daughter for power and fame. His wife slays him for it years later. Their children Electra and Orest kill her to avenge the father. A circle of hatred and destruction. No happy ending.
