Do you remember the song your mother sang in order to comfort you, and make you fall asleep? Did you resist? And what about now?
Lullabies can often be our first encounter with music, but they also could introduce us to the ambiguities of darkness and passivity. Lullabaloo (lullaby & hullabaloo) moves between insomnia and nightmare, news and nostalgia, creating a polyphonic poem about the sleep of reason producing monsters.
This is the third operatic piece between acclaimed Scottish poet W.N. Herbert and innovative Greek composer Evangelia Rigaki who alongside German dramaturg Laura Schmidt and Greek visual artist Andreas Papanastasiu create a piece for the amazingly versatile Latvian performer Margo Zalite.
