NEW SOLO SHOW
Veritaphobia is built on multiple projection scenography, surrealist costumes, and installations, shaped around originally composed contemporary 'crossover' opera. The concept, original music, and 13 costume changes were written and designed by Maya. Maya will be bringing new compositional work that fuses contemporary opera with Eastern European vocal technics, orchestral brass, and industrial drones created live with movement through installations.
Veritaphobia means fear of the truth. The installations, costumes, and music are reflecting on humanity’s fragile relationship with the earth and future predictions of environmental devastation and domination by artificial intelligence. Maya's 13 characters and faces of society live a transitional state between now and the future, challenging the inferiority and superiority of its creator. The aural and visual journey is a bake of human absurdism, garnished with inevitable dark humour and irony.
VERITAPHOBIA promotional teaser, dates, and destinations will be shared in this space and:
SURREALIST OPERATIC PERFORMANCE
Ephemera is a new project under development. It is a contemporary opera tragicomical piece. Ephemera means things that exist, but are enjoyed or used only for one and short time. It is an art video that reflects on the exaggeration of modern beauty, and our resignation to more permanent values of life and nature. Maya's long-armed half human creature can only survive from drinking petrol and eating plastic.
Art Direction by Maya Petrovna and Nikolina Gustin
