Tribal Loop Update 3 – Lockdown in West Cork Phase 3

Hi everyone. I am happy to announce that I gathered 1000 supporters at Instagram for morally support of Tribal Loop.

It currently seems that everything is somehow stable. Due to our circumstances, I am still working on options and thoughts on how I could progress with the first Act of the opera. Since 2018 I put every spare cent into the research and production to make Tribal Loop comes true.   The polished first act was scheduled for the download and stream in spring 2020 (in ecofriendly 1080p). But there is still hope. Despite Ireland’s rather unpleasant wind, water and weather conditions, my artivist friends achieved during the last month a remarkable performance that doesn’t have to hide from professional actors. I am very proud to work with them.

Small tribal loop Update.

Hello, dear comrades in crime. I hope that everyone is well locked up and keeps away from disaster (or not). My performance colleagues and the production team from Tribal Loop are eagerly waiting for the further processing of the first act.  Loosening measures of the lockdown is crucial to be able to take advantage of further filming this summer. I use the lockdown to prepare the postponed Indigo crowdfunding launch or work on presentations of the opera, marketing strategies etc. Usually, you have a huge team for that, but there is currently no money for the production costs. I am also still looking for a reputable Irish-based charity organization that takes care of the integration of international immigrants and refugees. Please contact me or get more information at www.triballoop.com. On top you can see the first draft for this page, which I designed last year but have now discarded. I would be very grateful if you would continue to share this page in order to be able to address or reach more people on the subject of tribalism. See you soon. Detlef
 
 

A Critical Crossover Opera by Detlef Schlich

At the present time, our species in Europe and eventually all over the world faces a number of problems and threats: poverty, overpopulation, ocean and land pollution, deforestation, climate change, wars and the threat of nuclear war, not to mention the current Corona Crisis.  All of these problems are exacerbated by tribalism, which means the belief that one’s own social group is better than others and therefore always right.

Worldwide, it is becoming increasingly clear that questions of identity and affiliation have become a highly political factor. The question of whether and to what extent cultural policy can be a means against the increasing nationalization of our societies is discussed even louder today than we could have imagined recently.

This contemporary opera should help us understand why it is imperative for us to realize that we are all one people, regardless of our ethnicity or place of birth.

This critical art project is pioneering a new approach to devising storytelling and film. It explores the destructive force of tribalism, it effects on society and proposes solutions.

Finally, it is hoped that it will help to enable and equip others to ask those same questions and seek to contribute to a more informed debate. Critical Enlightenment, understanding and a commitment to evolve beyond tribalism could turn out to be a key step in our journey to assure a brighter future for our planet, us humans, and all of nature.
