The production’s objective is to create a true rock opera with an intelligent and thought-provoking theme. The genre of classic rock makes it possible to develop more complex and interesting music themes than the typical “pop-ish” sound of most musicals. The story is based on dramatic plot twists and includes the traditional themes of an opera: love and death, betrayal and conflict – without forgetting the moments of comic relief.
The arts can also help popularize science and technology. Genetics is a hot topic, but the issue of gene editing has not made big headlines yet. TEST intends to change this lack of awareness. Through the story and the characters, TEST brings the issue closer, to an emotional level that will also provoke your thoughts.
Topics such as life extension, genetic cures for diseases, savior siblings, embryo manipulation and cloning are becoming part of everyday life. How will you react? With apprehension? Or will you welcome genetic optimization as another advance in the saga of human history? TEST doesn’t give you the answers. It gives you the opportunity to take a stand.
