Ariadne on Naxos
Within her long term research in interfacing choreographic activation and opera, following the traces of previous works in this particular field, Marjana Krajac continues this year with Richard Strauss' opera "Ariadne auf Naxos".
The research of this material started during the choreographs project Choreographers' Venture - The Adventure in Vienna, headed by Marten Spangberg and it continues in the last phase with Kirsten Burger, a member of Oper Dynamo West collective.
Using, analyzing and digesting the proposed opera material as the base for the choreographic activation, the conceptual structure is simultaneously contextualised as reaction and an insceining. In the process of realization of relations within that structure the research focuses on referential fade out, whereby opera material is layouted in wide affective spectrum of its very proposal.
