The Technopera project is a multimedia event combining techno culture and opera, carried out in the post-industrial space of the former Gdańsk Shipyard. The premiere of this unique spectacle created with the help of artificial intelligence will take place on the 17th of June, 2023 at 19.00 at the WL4 Mleczny Piotr Gallery in Gdańsk.
Technopera is based on a libretto by Podletz (Artur Kozdrowski) and Peter Style (Piotr Wyrzykowski). It consists of audiovisual samples from popular science and science fiction films arranged in the form of a dialogue between the characters of the opera. The libretto played live by a VJ provides a choreographic and dramatic reference point for actors and musicians.
Artists who co-created the group C.U.K.T. are involved in the implementation of Technopera. The director and author of the visual layer is Piotr Wyrzykowski, the character of the Man will be played by Mikołaj Robert Jurkowski. Other artists taking part in the project are the artists from the Tri-City, also well known to the Polish and international audience. The creator of electronic music Michał Jacaszek will prepare the electronic layer of the opera, and NeoQuartet with its electric instruments will be his partner in creating the entire audio sphere of the event. The cast of Technopera is completed by soprano and performer Aleksandra Klimczak. The other characters of the opera Alien, Machine and Cyborg will be generated with the help of artificial intelligence.
