Makiko Nishikaze: Breakfast Opera
BAM! – Berliner Festival für aktuelles Musiktheater
20. /21.September 2018 Acker Stadt Palast Berlin

Every morning, everywhere in the world, people have breakfast. It is a daily ritual which is highly shaped by individual preferences and cultural influences. Makiko Nishikaze and the ensemble Maulwerker transform this subject into a spatial musical situation. The composition integrates sounds, gestures, smells, voices, images, and various languages. The focus on the mundane opens up a space for new perceptions, and investigates the intentions of our activities.
