Sun & Sea

An opera performance by Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainytė and Lina Lapelytė CPH STAGE

Selected as one of the highlights at CPH STAGE 2021.


Imagine a beach – you watching from above – the burning sun, bright bathing suits, people reading, children playing with plastic toys. Then a chorus of songs: everyday songs, songs of almost nothing. And below them: the slow creaking of an exhausted Earth, a gasp.
The performance is presented in collaboration with Copenhagen Contemporary and TRAVERS.
