Produced by The Aequitas Collective/Folk Opera Iceland (Alþýðuóperan)

Friday 17th August: 19:50 – 21:10 2018

 

The Place, 17 Duke’s Rd, London, WC1H 9PY

 

When Justie sends a misguided tweet she employs her colleague Talon to try and fix the mounting backlash on social media. Meanwhile his wife Finna, a famous lifestyle vlogger, begins an online affair with recluse Freyja. ‘#echochamber’ explores how we ‘make mistakes’ online inspired by Jon Ronson’s book ’So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed’. This Anglo-Icelandic opera invites audiences to tweet their ‘deepest, darkest secrets’ onto a live twitter feed as we contemplate: “where do we live nowadays? On or offline?”
