Speak out! Political project

In March, a new constellation was formed during an intensive week of laboratory work completed with a public show. Niklas Rydén from NewOpera CO collaborates here with Saga Björklund Jönsson, Emma Augustsson and Karin Wiberg. Saga is new to NewOpera CO and active, among others, in The Mainstream and Bataljonen an has performed at Atalante.
From this meeting, the idea of Speak out! came up. Speak out! is an contemporary political new opera that sticks to the turmoil in politics around the world that has caused many to wonder how safe our democracy really is. Speak out! will be a kind of political art cabaret that mixes the piano trio with pop, and angry texts with scenic action. Speak out! will be played both for adults and for high school.
