Vehicles of public transport are stages of drama and present a microcosm of urban life - as in LONELY HEARTS BUS TOUR, a journey into the lonely heart of Berlin. Opera Lab Berlin’s bus trip responds to the rapid changes that the city is undergoing, focusing in particular on the area of the festival area in Berlin-Mitte and its transformation from a lively oasis of alternative culture to the monotonous shop window of the global brand Berlin. Electronic beats (the melancholic heartbeat of the city) give the pulse of this cardiogram, which, by sound, noises, pictures and texts, leads into Berlin's lonely heart and the lonely hearts of Berlin.
