TitelSchlingensief and the African Opera Village. On Imaginations of Opera and the African Continent
Beschreibungdate and venue of the workshop: June 2015, Iwalewahaus, University of Bayreuth

Iwalewahaus, University of Bayreuth invites the participation of scholars and artists in exploring Schlingensief’s vision and the implementation of the African Opera Village (Operndorf Afrika), currently built in Burkina Faso. To understand the idea of the Opera Village, it is crucial to examine Schlingensief’s earlier works on Africa and the operas of Richard Wagner as well as the interconnection of both spheres.
The German director and action artist Christoph Schlingensief is well known in Bayreuth for his staging of Richard Wagner’s Parsifal at four Bayreuth Festivals from 2004 to 2007. Schlingensief’s long-term treatment of Wagner’s music, as well as his fascination with the African continent, is of special interest for the Iwalewahaus and its focus on modern and contemporary art from African countries and the African Diaspora.
