SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
On the Northern Broadwalk
Maya was invited by Sydney's iconic Club Kooky to team up with the Sydney Opera House, and launch her new contemporary operatic solo show, 'The Womb of Universe and The Boob Monster', as part of the official opening of Sydney Vivid Festival. Maya composes the original music, and designs all costumes and projection scenography for her highly immersive live performances. She will sing live while metamorphosing thru a series of otherworldly costumes, zooming into a metaphors of the modern life and political surrealism.
Club Kooky has staged events across Sydney for 25 years, contributing to Sydney's underworld of creativity and LGBTQIA community, and now for the 3d year teaming up with Sydney Opera House. We look forward to see you there.
NEW SOLO SHOW
Veritaphobia is Maya's upcoming and ninth full-length self-directed show. It is an ambitious work that's opening its door to new collaborators in large installation and set design, creating a new powerfully immersive experience. Behind the surrealist performance art, Maya has worked by herself from concept to composing of all original music, designing of 13 costumes and projection videos. She will perform her contemporary 'crossover' operatic songs while transforming through 13 otherworldly characters and installations that represent faces of society.
Veritaphobia (fear of the truth) is channelling environmental and social changes. Questioning if the modern technology is the real cause of dehumanization, or if it is an exhibition of human nature that no longer loves itself?
Maya is currently filming a surrealist feature-length film, Phoresis, which is a collaborative effort of few filmmakers from Europe and Australia, following Maya's recent tour and performances. The film will connect many of her characters and original music, placing them into an epic story about society, its servants and the consumers.
Releases and updates about the film will be shared in this space and
