OpenLab workshop “The Sound of Trolls”

Within the project European Theatre Lab: Drama Goes Digital, which is supported by the Creative Europe programme, Croatian National Theater in Zagreb in cooperation with Radiona / Makerspace Zagreb, is organizing an OpenLab workshop “The Sound of Trolls”. In this workshop participants will be involved with various acoustic and electronic DIY instruments for experimental music. The participants will gain insight into the different possibilities of using analogue and digital music instruments. After the initial introduction to the devices, the participants and the tutors will together, through improvisation, play sound / music on the subject of trolls. In Henrik Ibsen’s “Peer Gynt”, in the fifth act, king of Trolls at one moment exclaimed to Peer that he was a troll all of his life, not a man. This workshop aims to connect the activities of the hacker, geeky culture with the mythological concept of trolls and their reflection through a dramatic work, in this case Norwegian drama classic of Henrik Ibsen. Through joint work, participants will try to give a sound to these trolls using a wide range of devices while simultaneously eliminating their fear of technology and the unknown.


Workshop will held by Damir Prizmić, Deborah Hustić and Igor Brkić from radiona.org.
