All watched over by machines of loving grace

Hofmann | van Bebber | Rodrigo | Huber

For the second time, the extremely mixed choir is making a guest appearance in Berlin. This time the group of amateurs and professionals explores ways of coexistence in the »Digitalocene«. How are contemporary technologies changing the way we live together? Can we act responsibly and without false anxieties in an environment of omnipresent, constant media exposure? In the midst of audience members, loudspeaker trees and cable groves an installative concert for human and non-human bodies takes place: a song about the loneliness of humans, about the love of the machines and the complexity of the world.

The extremely mixed choir is a multi-professional, diverse and intergenerational singing collective, which was founded in 2018 for the music theater production »Declaration of Dependence«. The artistic direction team consists of composers Lukas Huber and Leo Hofmann, director Benjamin van Bebber and scenographer Zahava Rodrigo. Together they search for possibilities of an integral interaction of space, music and scene in the compositional and staging process.
