Event description
A screening of Alexandre Singh's The Humans, part of Hot with Excess: A Season of Contemporary Artists’ Opera

About this Event

Part of Hot with Excess: A Season of Contemporary Artists’ Opera, a special season of live events exploring the collision of contemporary art and opera, featuring Sam Belinfante, Beatrice Gibson, Trulee Hall, Richard Kennedy, Benjamin Orlow, Marijke de Roover and Alexandre Singh.

Modelled on the comic writings of Aristophanes and set at the dawn of time and space, The Humans tells the tale of two spirits named Tophole and Pantalingua, who would rather the Earth not be created at all. In a battle against the egomaniacal Creator, they conspire their way to an accidental Paradise Lost, ultimately corrupting the eponymous humans—portrayed as a songful and statuesque Greek chorus—into the flawed mortals we are today.

The Humans was originally developed and premiered at Witte de With, Rotterdam, over 2012 and 2013. It was later presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, as part of Performa 13 in 2013.
