The makers behind this special performance met up a few years ago with a several communal goals in mind. That is to say, to create an opera in the dark, involving other senses and allegedly completely removing the visual aspect. However, the latter is really the most activated factor. Through the abstract audio images and concrete pre-recorded sounds the listener’s imagination produces strong inner pictures linked to feelings, sensations or objects.

The three makers based their libretto on the seven mortal sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride) and offer the (blind-folded) audience plenty of food for thought. Visiting the performance is an extremely intense experience. Being without sight reinforces the other senses, such as hearing and smell. The big question is whether all of the sounds that you appear to hear really exist. Immerse yourself in a creative experiment in the dark!

Young visitors are very welcome to attend this performance but will be wearing a blindfold for an hour and there will be little contact with their parents
