In 2020, VRTY had the opportunity to work with creators all over the world with Weather#, an online multimedia opera on climate change. Weather# was composed by Elizabeth Swados on the text of Filippo Consales, with the objective of raising awareness on the issues of climate change and the human impact on the natural world.
The original oratorio was presented onstage at Teatro Romano in Spoleto, Italy’s Festival Dei Due Mondi 2014.
VRTY had the opportunity to work with the original collaborators Associazione Bisse and La Mama Umbria International, as well as the City of Spoleto, together with international partners La Mama ETC, CultureHub, Seoul Institute of the Arts, Arium are working together to create Weather#, Swados’s oratorio re-imagined as a multimedia odyssey online, where the audience can experience the music through 11 unique VR environments, uncovering the stories, as well as delving into the scientific or cultural references discussed through music.
The project co-involves the efforts of creators and artists in Italy, Europe, France, United Kingdom, United States, Korea, Mexico, and more!
