operAct, conjugating opera in the present time
Conjugating opera in the present time having carte blanche, such is operAct’s aspiration
operAct aims at the creation and distribution of live productions.
Its main ambition is to devise all-encompassing projects and associating contemporary artists from every artistic sphere (music, design, cinema, graffic arts, fashion, etc.).
It also intends to transform and renew the relationship between the lyrical art and its audience by conceiving productions half-way between the opera and the contemporary art installations, where inventiveness and technology conspire to support musical projects for reduced number of performers, which assures more versatility.
An itinerant troupe gathered around a strong common artistic project must be able to perform in unexpected locations. Last, operAct aims at offering an encounter between the classical repertoire and subjects broaching on the present state of our modern world.
