In what ways can contemporary music theatre contribute to the creation and formulation of new lines (of thought) for a meaningful mobility of the future? By producing unusual theatrical settings in public spaces that no one walks past! By opening stations of the future in the middle of the city (and thus before everyone’s eyes!) By manifesting ways of moving forward that are robot-controlled and fed by music, or by setting in motion new moving streams of knowledge, memory and forgetting amongst visitors to the HP8 municipal library! In “New Lines”, the Biennale seeks to highlight the importance of artistic thought in addressing key socio-political issues. The Munich Biennale has invited three independent producing companies from Finland (Oblivia), the Netherlands (Het Geluid) and Germany (Novoflot) for this special pilot project, all of whom have influenced the European music theatre scene for many years. For the Biennale they are staging productions with composers Ted Hearne, Tamara Miller, Du Yun and Yiran Zhao for the first time. The three world premieres will be shown several times a day from 5th – 9th June or can be visited during specific opening hours.
