The Devil's Kitchen
The Devil’s Kitchen is the working title of a new spoken opera that we intend to develop and stage as a rehearsed reading set to music by mid-June 2022.
Our aim is to create an imagined world in word and sound that enables us to engage both artistically/aesthetically and critically/ethically with the increasing fragmentation and polarisation of society at a time of global crisis.
The work is divided into five acts. It tells the story of four individuals who, independently of one another, set out in a dark world full of hate and anger to find a long-lost 'urtext of human coexistence' and in the process cross paths time and again within a variety of different settings.
