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 the end of the year (2021).
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.
