OPHELIA DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE reveals the story of Ophelia as a monomaniacal botanist - wilful, unpredictable and in love with a self-harming sociopath. Following Daniel Schlusser’s radical revisions of the poetic texts of Ibsen and Calderon, OPHELIA DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE further develops this hyper-realist mode, placing the decisions of a contemporary woman into a context of devious political machinations, sexual perversion and casual murder. Striking theatre emerges from quotidian gestures, in the uncommon locale of a Melbourne living-room. OPHELIA DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE is a cross-artform opera, bringing together text from Hamlet, video, physical extremes and Verhagen’s dark combination of music and Noise to create a new chamber opera performance installation.
