Cyberspace Opera "honoria in ciberspazio"

"honoria in ciberspazio is a romantic, collaborative opera. We invited everyone who visited these pages to send poetry about their Internet-facilitated relationships."

"honoria in ciberspazio is a romantic, collaborative opera. Over 60 contributors have sent their poetry and arias to the libretto, the opera's script. Thus, the libretto is written by net-citizens, people with intimate knowledge of the ways virtual relationships form and deconstruct in cyberspace. The opera's characters sing and type their words into the constant flow of Internet information.
Their fragmented net communication leads to misunderstandings, complex philosophical positioning, confrontations, danger and love. Original music is being composed by George Oldziey. The project is headed towards a full-scale professional opera stage production."

The Getrude Stein Repertoy Theatre

z.B. UBU Project:
"New York-based Gertrude Stein Repertory Theatre (GSRT) will present an exciting, new multimedia look of the creation of the innovative UBU PROJECT. Collaborating with artists in Japan and Russia, GSRT is developing new theatre for the 21st century by integrating traditional stage-bound techniques with the limitless space of the World Wide Web."

"The UBU PROJECT is the Gertrude Stein Repertory Theatre's original, full-length adaptation of Alfred Jarry's 1898 work, King Ubu. The project features live actors present in the performance space, projected characters via video-conferencing, and "Digital Puppets" derived from the Japanese performance traditions of bunraku and ningyo buri."
The full production of the UBU PROJECT is scheduled for Winter 2000.
