  • Delfina Foundation 29 Catherine Place SW1E 6DY London United Kingdom (map)

Deyson Gilbert with collaborators Avenir Institute (Denis Maksimov & Timo Tuominen), Gabriel Francisco Lemos and Tom N presents The Bitter Plums of Chelsea Manning: An Opera in Three Acts. Two panellists present images on a screen and talk about the contradictory parts of an amputated body. A singer struggles to remember an unknown hymn. In the backstage, an audio technician controls a radio while a cameraman thinks about Ivanka Trump. A libretto handed to the audience quotes Richard Wagner: "Joy is not in things: it is in us".
