Każin Barokk

A Piece for Five Performers,
Male Chorus Ensemble, Brass Ensemble and a robot
Commissioned by Valetta 2018

European Capital of Culture

Immersive and site-specific performance on gaming and tax paradises, held at the majestic Notre Dame Gate in Birgu. This game-like performance will transform the near 400 year old building into a dark and beautiful maze, to open up a myriad of possibilities conjured by real-time video, live music, Baroque choir and robotics. The die is cast, the card is drawn.
