Video Opera Orfeas2021
March 2/19:00 - 21:00
On March 2nd, at 18:30, the video opera ORFEAS2021 from Greece is coming to the hall of the Kaunas Artists’ House. ORFEAS2021 is a retro-futurist story of utopian politics, ideological conflicts, supernatural leaders and totalitarian spectacle. Cyberpunk queer pirates against rainbow homo-capitalist normies. Revolution vs reformism; logic vs affect. The trappings of post-internet identity politics through a contemporary take of the myth of Orpheus.
Oscillating between operatic melodrama, queer DIY collage, 80s inspired post-trash hauntology and VR/AI aesthetics, the film creates a kaleidoscopic take on political purity, alternative histories and institutional critique.
*The opera is influenced by and dedicated to the memory of Zak Kostopoulos/Zackie Oh, a queer performer and activist, murdered in 2018 in the centre of Athens.*
Sci-Fi video opera; Greece, 2021; 111 min. The film will be shown in Greek with English subtitles.
Artists: FYTA, Adriana Minou
Producer: Alex Dimitriou
Event is initiated by Kaunas artists’ house volunteers.
