The Miniature Opera Project (2017)
three video clips and a B-roll clip.
commissioned by: VONK
In October 2016, VONK announced a call to composers worldwide to write mini operas with a duration of two minutes on the theme Social Change. VONK selected the best entries. About the starting point, VONK wrote: “Social change means that large numbers of persons are engaging in activities that differ from those which they or their immediate forefathers engaged in some time before.” A quote from sociologists Merrill and Eldredge.
The selected compositions for the video clips are made by Nicholas Cline (USA), Mateo Soto (ES), Anne-Maartje Lemereis.
