Rens Kortmann appears in opera about gaming and participation

Assistant professor Rens Kortmann will appear as an expert on gaming and participation in the opera ‘Parsival, playingfields’ during the Rotterdam Opera Days. During the preparation of the event he acted as a scientific sparring partner to the director. During the performance he will shortly introduce the audience to the idea of playful participation. From the programme: “In Wagners’ Parsifal the eponymous hero sets out to redeem those he meets. But should not every redeemer be distrusted or avoided? In this refreshing adaptation, Wagners’ themes and symbols are held up to the harsh light of modern times.” Performance dates (all in Dutch): 17 – 20 May 2014 @ Oude Luxor Theatre, Rotterdam.
