The world premiere of “The Followers of Ø” by Trond Reinholdtsen is based on a 17-episode video series under the name “Ø”, which the Norwegian composer developed together with his team from 2015 – a mixture of science fiction, verismo, communist propaganda, outdated existentialism and autobiography.

Experience an anarchistic musical theatre for 8 soloists, midi orchestra playback, the Decoder Ensemble, midi light show, mud, volcanoes and popcorn.
