Rigoletto24 video (part 1)

A short trailer documenting the first phase of Rigoletto24.

Over the course of 24 hours the general public are invited to make live changes to a German translation of the libretto from the opera Rigoletto. Text can be chopped and changed on a series of computers that have been networked together, while a pianist continuously plays the musical score. After 24 hours seven opera singers perform the new text. Each performance of Rigoletto24 is a world premiere, in which the audience is given the opportunity to decide on the content and dramaturgical turn of events that enfold within the opera.

Susanne Kudielka and Kaspar Wimberley work internationally as interventionists and performance researchers specialising in site-specific and site-responsive art, alternative strategies for audience interaction and new forms of artistic collaboration.

The artistic process usually begins with a given site, and a process of observation and dialogue that analyses, and eventually responds, to the architectural, socio-political, geographical, mythological, connotative and historical narratives that can be found there.

Projects are quietly subversive, playfully readjusting the narrative and appreciation of a particular activity or a given site. The working process often involves those that live in an area, and aims to be accessible and relevant.
