Poetics
The idea of a space duet arose in the fall of 2019. We discussed lots of topics related to space, researched, tried out new techniques. During rehearsals, we created an overall composition out of all the meanings brainstormed. The pandemic caught us off guard. And the period of self-isolation certainly shifted emphasis and helped to answer many questions. After all, a space flight is primarily about loneliness and isolation. 'The red planet' is not only about space, but also about the inner world of a human, about finding balance, about interaction, about emptiness and loneliness, about atoms and particles - about the Universe in us.

A fact
The first time the cosmo opera 'Red Planet' was shown under unexpected circumstances and with a minimum of spectators. Therefore, we compare our project with a legend (a myth): many have heard about the Red Planet, but few have seen it. This is how 2020 feels like.
