Opera Lab Berlin
Lonely Hearts Bus Tour
Vehicles of public transport are stages of drama and present a microcosm of urban life – as in LONELY HEARTS BUS TOUR, a journey into the lonely heart of Berlin. The group Opera Lab Berlin around Michael Höppner and Evan Gardner has become known in the Berlin music theater scene with projects in which instrumentalists appear with equal virtuosity also as actors. Opera Lab’s bus trip responds to the rapid changes that the city is undergoing, focusing in particular on the area of the festival in Berlin-Mitte and its transformation from a lively oasis of alternative culture to the monotonous shop window of the global brand Berlin. Electronic beats (the melancholic heartbeat of the city) give the pulse of this cardiogram, which, by sound, noises, pictures and texts, leads into Berlin’s lonely heart and the lonely hearts of Berlin.
