The Cockpit

 

Music & Words: Mees Vervuurt

 

In ‘Sometimes I visualize myself back in the belly of my mother’ 5 singers scream in harmony, looking for a nod, a ‘yes’, a sign of understanding, a reaction. But if this will never come, only the echo can offer us comfort. 

 

In this immersive new opera these singers use the edges of their voices – from stuttering to wolves howling – drowned in the desire of going back to the womb.

 

Age Rating: Adults, 18+
