Extract of Fathers by The Lappetites

The Lappetites ” Fathers” at HKW, Berlin

Fathers – a new opera by the Lappetites.

Following years researching the lives of their own fathers, a high ranking officer in the East German Army, an English arable farmer born on the land he still works, and a Korean business man emigrated to Japan, they have filtered real and historical material through current and digital transformations to tell a series of tales, sometimes tri-fold, sometimes singular, framed by an extraordinary narrative.

The Lappetites is an international collective who write their work through online communication and occasional one place collision somewhere else in the world. Founded in 2001 their current members are Antye Greie aka AGF, Blanca Regina Perez-Bustamante, Kaffe Matthews and Ryoko Akama.
