#echochamber

Wed 15 Aug
A new opera inspired by Jon Ronson's book 'So You've Been Publicly Shamed' that asks us: "where do we live nowadays? On or offline?"
DETAILS

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?"


Local composer and conductor, Michael Betteridge, brings his latest music-theatre offering to Manchester fresh from its successful run in Reykjavik, Iceland where it gained the attention of the national press. Combining opera, theatre and live projections, this interactive work redefines what opera is in the digital age of the 21st century.


(Suitable for audiences 14+ due to potential bad language)


Supported with funds from Arts Council England and Superbia.
