MAYA is a Techno-Opera in the ruins of the heating plant Munich-Aubing. An opera that fully integrates augmented reality in the science fiction storyline and the performance.
MAYA stages the former heating plant Munich-Aubing as a historic site. Through an augmented reality app on the own smartphone, the spectator betakes himself in the perspective of a new civilization in the distant future, and looks back in amazement on the demise of our current civilization in the near future.
Singer Martina Koppelstetter takes on the role of "Maya". She is on a mission. Does she manage to rescue the Cyberspace and with it herself and the humanity?
MAYA transcends the core of an opera into the present: intoxication, ecstasy and extension of consciousness through music, sound, light and digital art. Opera and Techno: both stand for a powerful rebellion against death, against loneliness. For a life without limits. For the promise of a world in which we live according to our boldest imaginations, without ever encountering physical limitations.
Commissioned by Projektförderung Darstellende Kunst der Landeshauptstadt München, Fonds Darstellende Kunst, Creative Industries Fund, Königreichs der Niederlande.
From October 18th to 22nd 2017, music theater MAYA will be premiering in the last industrial ruins of Munich.
