Exposition

The poetics of enlivening. Searching for the music drama "Borderlands" (last edited: 2019)

About this exposition

From the perspective of the librettist, the linear working methods which originate in a traditional way of working with opera and still dominate in the creation of new music drama, often result in a situation where the initial intentions are lost along the way. How can we get away from a rigid methodology, where the different professionals involved in the creation of new music drama have to succumb to a procedure which can be likened to a kind of "whispering game"? A procedure, where the content, rather than undergoing an "emotional enrichment" in its transformation into music, risks ending up in a landscape very far from the sown seed. The common thread of this doctoral project has been to get beyond the "whispering game" by seeking alternative working methods in the creation of a new music drama with the working title "Borderlands", circling around the subject matter of flight and borders- inner as well as outer. Borrowing from the terminology of Martin Buber, the research has focused on finding more cross-border methods when transforming the drama into text, vocal and instrumental acting in order to counteract the “I – It” relationship that often results from the genre’s focus on virtuosity. Hopefully, this research can inspire more attempts to find alternative working methods which will ultimately create a stronger “I – Thou” relationship between the musical – dramatic performance and the audience.
