ZUAM

Mesmerizing outdoor opera ritual mixes sign language, dance and electronics

Futurists Foundation / Jerzy Bielski & Thomas Brand (PL/NL)

Step into the uncharted world of ZUAM – a captivating opera ritual with four opera singers, a deaf dancer, electronics, and video. Explore the complexities of sign language and UrSprache, a proto-language explored by Futurist poets.

ZUAM is both a rebellion against known reality and a metaphysical ceremony, invoking the mystery of existence. We take you to the unseen, the unspoken, the poetic, the mysterious past, and the future world of your own imagination. Rediscover your inner self during this meditative experience, specifically designed for the 21st-century soul constantly overwhelmed by a rapidly changing world. A cathartic journey that speaks directly to the subconscious, while you briefly escape reality.

Please note: The 19:00 start time includes a ZUAM special dinner (vegetarian) for visitors (limited capacity) at Buitenplaats Brienenoord. The ticket price for this time includes this meal. The ZUAM performance starts at 8:30 pm.

“In 2022 as a fledgling sketch during O. Lab and now back as a full-fledged open-air opera: Futurists Foundation invites audiences to an island to take a special journey together between dream and reality…” – Hans Blik, business director O.
