Thousand Times Yes is an experimental chamber opera that follows a person named G, who has the ability to connect and communicate with a variety of creatures.

Thousand Times Yes is a philosophical, haunting and poetic exploration of the limits and possibilities of language, communication, space and the body. The performance challenges the concept, aesthetics and hierarchical tradition of opera. 

An ancient organism in the Earth’s crust is rising towards the surface. Its movements mobilise minerals, bacteria, fungi, gases and the atmosphere, causing instability that creates a web of unexpected conflicts. The protagonist, a human called G, has been given the ability to connect and communicate with different bodies and beings. G is summoned to mediate between the conflicting parties – and eventually meet the ancient organism itself. 

A story of companionship and coexistence, Thousand Times Yes makes space for alternative futures.
