Moving Movements: livestream of the opera in Stedelijk museum

On the occasion of a retrospective about Jean Tinguely*, the Stedelijk Museum and Dutch National Opera are presenting a new opera: Bewogen Bewegen. Jean Tinguely is famous for his playful, boldly kinetic machines and explosive performances. Everything had to be different, everything had to move.

For the opera, music theatre maker and director Marcel Sijm was inspired by the world of Dick Raaijmakers, a Dutch composer-theoretician and a contemporary of Tinguely, who took an electro-acoustic approach to playing with the concepts of immobility and motion.

In the opera there is a special role for the cameraman: he will actually be part of the performance. Via a special Facebook livestream you can follow the performance from his point of view! It's a very special way to be part of the performance, especially now that it appears to be sold out.

SOLD OUT: though it's still possible 'to attend' via the livestream.
