TWO (2009)
Chamber opera

Texts: UMS 'N JIP

TWO - electropop chamber orchestra/musical theatre featuring works for voice, recorder and electronics by UMS 'n JIP.
Inspired by texts taken from "20 Minuten", UMS and JIP created a chamber opera in collaboration with director Wolfgang Beuschel and artist Gisela-Ethaner Schelble. Together they amalgamised elaborate music, everyday situations and texts about the latest Vatikan scandal, simulated cyber attacks on American chemical companies and quotes from the small ads to form extremely dense and absurd jokes. With a wink and a nudge, the artists take the audience on a journey into an unpredictable cosmos where strange is the norm and the wackiness of being comforting: Normality is unique.
