AES+F presents Turandot at the LOOP fair Barcelona 2021

Off projects. From 16 Nov, 2021 to 19 Nov, 2021

AES+F develops an opulent and surreal visual aesthetic for a reinterpretation of Giacomo Puccini's last opera, Turandot, which they performed at the Teatro Massimo in Palermo, Italy in 2019.


His work is based on the tensions created between the traditional and the contemporary, from technology to narrative and aesthetics. This is also true for their recent production of Turandot. The collective brings together the classic Turandot, adapted to today’s socio-political dynamics, with the Euro-Oriental fusion aesthetic for which AES+F is so well known. The result is a magnificent wave of surreal visual and aural stimuli.

This work raises existential questions about China from a Western perspective, women’s revenge and authoritarianism, and a mixture of past and future, each of these themes intertwined.
