Marc Sinan (Composer, intercultural, transdisciplinary music theatre, Berlin)

The multi-award-winning composer, guitarist and music theatre maker Marc Sinan presents his projects Manifest(o), Human Commodity and Oumuamua.
Marc Sinan belongs to a generation of composers who understand their musical practice as genuinely political. Intervening, staging, intervening, founding collectives and developing new concert formats are all part of his musical practice. Marc Sinan has made a name for himself not least with large transdisciplinary and intercultural music theatre projects, in which he plays in more and more digital spaces alongside analogue spaces and in which interaction and a hybrid concert experience are possible.

How can a hybrid project be sensual? How can an oratorio enable commemoration in seven cities simultaneously? How can lay participation contribute to a refined artistic work? Talk and workshop with Marc Sinan & Company

Marc Sinan is a composer and guitarist. In his work he explores new ways of collaboration between artists in a transcultural and transmedial context. He usually works in personal union as composer, artistic director, guitarist and producer with his own ensemble, the Marc Sinan Company, as well as with changing international guests and institutional partners. Recordings of his works are released by ECM Records. He lives and works in Berlin.
His mostly full-length works address current socio-political issues. They are performed internationally and have been guests at festivals such as the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Istanbul Festival, MaerzMusik, as well as at houses such as Oper Halle, Oper Wuppertal, Theater Bremen, Humboldt-Forum Berlin, the Gorki Theater, and the Vienna Konzerthaus. Sinan has collaborated with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Philharmonie Jena, Staatskapelle Weimar, Staatsphilharmonie Nürnberg, Dresdner Sinfoniker, No Borders Orchestra, Ensemble ConTempo Beijing, Belgrade Ensemble Metamorphosis, Sonar Quartet, Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, Medienkollektiv schnellebuntebilder, Iva Bittová, Oğuz Büyükberber, Jörg Widmann, Kayhan Kalhor and countless other ensembles, musicians: inside and artist:inside from Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.
