ACH! Almost a radio opera




A participative music theatre project by and with course participants of the Munich Volkshochschule

The music theater project “ACH! Almost a radio opera” is a sequel to the first participation project, “GAACH—more or less a folk opera,” which premiered in 2016 with over 280 Participants at the Munich Biennale in the foyer of the Gasteig Cultural Centre in cooperation with the Munich Volkshochschule. Whilst “GAACH” focussed on the history and residents of Munich’s Haidhausen district, this year’s production centres around the aspect of “locality”: the participants, invited to take part from all walks of life, examine locations and places, significant to them in the past, present, and future using new texts, compositions as well as classical means of radio play production. In cooperation with the Munich Volkshochschule the staged radio play evolved during various phases and workshops. Together with professional musicians and performers, the work investigates what happens when places only exist in our imagination as they never may again? How and where can one live or survive in the future? Is it possible through Art, to devise utopian, imaginary, mysterious places and identities that offer diverse visions and perspectives for the future?
