Abstract

The Migration Game is a game opera, which positions the audience as migrants, whose aim is to cross the border.

In Part One, they meet the Spirit of Hope (mezzo soprano) who inspires them to seek new adventures - they then have to find their visas hidden around the set. Part Two is modelled on an Escape Room - aided by Hope (who provides clues) the audience have to solve musical puzzles to gain permission to cross the border. Anyone trying to cross without permission incurs a penalty to all players - lights are turned out; no verbal clues are given. When two players are left, they are told they can only cross the border if one of them shoots Hope - who then sings her dying aria.
