MENADE is an artist collective, that tests and finds ways to break the boarders between opera and theatre. They re-contextualize classical materials, they experiment, renew and challenge. Their focus is the role of the woman and questions of identity. The group started to work together in 2015 during their studies and they developed a special way of working together: directing, set and costume design leave their own territory and they unite at equal levels in the production. This concept contains the making of new music, new visual language and new forms of using the theatrical space, which dissolves the classical spectator-situation. The result is an experience, which integrates and involves the audience.
