«Get Going!» Portrait Series 2021
«Breaking boundaries is the motto, craziness the motor, the stars the goal»: this is the guideline that Engadine musician Bibi Vaplan used to create POPCORN-OPERA. This new kind of opera allows artistic creations to pop up. Everything is allowed. From music, literature, happenings, inventions to mini festivals. If traditional operas take place on a stage, this project explodes in all possible directions: digital, analogue, live, somewhere, everywhere and even on the moon. On 6.11.2021, the longest opera “prologue” ever ended. After this test phase, the popcorn opera will start the big overture in 2023.
«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
