The experimental music theater play "Cantio" is a kind of opera in which no one sings in the beginning. Instead language is floating through the space. A language that will gradually turn into a hymn-like farewell song. It is a hymn sung by the people for the gods who built a ship and want to leave the city for ever. It is a never ending song that tries to enchant and captivate the gods. The act of singing itself will be the focus of the evening. It is supposed to affect, enchant and beguile the moody gods who are on the ship in the port ready to leave. Cantio is a commissioned work by the Munich Biennale that premiered in 2004 with great success. Within the context of the Ultraschall-Festival 2013 the play was revised, interpreted musically and scenically anew and performed once more.
k&k kultkom was responsible for the production management, financing as well as public relations for this project.
