The Wandering (Opera Ivre & Per Aspera)
The Wandering, a stream-of-consciousness opera, takes its libretto directly from the text of Ulysses by extracting and assembling sentences and phrases into pieces of a puzzle to express the themes of the book and the opera, as Joyce did with The Odyssey, The Bible, and all the literature and language referenced to create his story of one day wandering the streets of Dublin.
The performance is part of "Was ist Was (What is What)" by Tanzscout Berlin.

Opéra Ivre serves opera with wine, bringing to life the poetry and intoxicated spirit of Bohemian subculture, past and present.
Per Aspera is a theater and performance company interested in international collaboration, audience-performer relations, site-specific/immersive creations, and the exploration of new forms. With a blatant disregard for the ordinary.
The Delphi is a former silent movie cinema from 1929, which after a long Sleeping Beauty sleep is now being reawakened as an international center for art and culture. As a production and performance space, the house offers a unique and exceptional setting for performing arts of all kinds, with excellent acoustics and breathtaking aesthetics. Per Aspera's artistic direction team focuses on music theater and site-specific projects, and is happy to open the doors to special concepts of the independent performing arts community and beyond, which "think outside the (black) box“.
