The CAFETERIA Opera Game 2012

In November 2012 for the soon be launched University of the Arts Helsinki that brings together the Sibelius Academy, the Theatre Academy and the Academy of the Fine Arts under one roof, we commissioned a community-building opera game from interdiciplinary composer Keren Rosenbaum. The Opera Game CAFETERIA, played by more than 500 people in the 3 cafeterias of the 3 arts academies, planted the seeds for greater future interdisciplinary community collaborations. The game was played by students, faculty members, cafeteria employees as well as cleaning personnel and random people passing by. It was a spectacle of human creativity at its best.

Summer Lunchtime Concerts at the Helsinki Music Centre 2012

The basis of ExClaM!’s concerts is the shared belief that everyone deserves to experience Music, and that Music can speak to everyone, when framed creatively and presented in a way that supports the audience’s connection with live music and with the artists.
In this sense, ExClaM! is first of all a concept developer: through Active Listening Playground workshops, it creates a safe environment in which musicians can work creatively in interdisciplinary teams. The results are holistic concert experiences that encourage the active involvement of the audience.
