Akira Takayama: Richard Wagner meets McDonald's

Online Lecture7 July 2020, 19:00

In his lecture, Akira Takayama will present two of his recent projects:
McDonald's Radio University is a project that transforms branches of the McDonald's franchise across a city into lecture spaces, creating a citywide university. The professors are immigrants or refugees who have had to leave their home countries, and the students are people who walk into a McDonald's and order a lecture along with a burger and a coke. The project was premiered in 2017 across seven McDonald's stores in Frankfurt, Germany.
Wagner Project (2019) is a 10-day 'school' that combines Richard Wagner's opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (1868) with street culture such as hip-hop and rap. It was realized as a 'Hip-Hop Academy' and also as a 'temporary city' at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt for pulling street performers (rappers, dancers, and graffiti writers) who usually work outside the theater into the theater.

Akira Takayama is a theater director and artist who embraces a broad range of non-conventional performance methods in a bid to expand the concept of theater within contemporary society. They include installations, touring performances, social experimentation projects, discourse events, sightseeing tours, videos, and many other approaches.
