Opera at the Freezing Favela

23 Apr 2013

The Freezing Favela was in motion and there were loads of great things to do. This city deserved beautiful music. Krystian Lada liked to work with the Freezing Favela citizens, and knows everything about tunes and tones. He organized the European Opera days we celebrate at the Fabriek between May 4th and 12th.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you could make tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and cook with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
