Nano opera is a unique format for opera that
involves the creation of a work of multimedia
art in the space of one square meter. Fluxus
Nano Opera “At Home/Not at Home” deals with
Margo Zālīte’s feelings after ten years of
commuting between Riga and Berlin. It is a
confession of fondness for the feeling of
“being between”: the only tolerable feeling
within an otherwise intolerable existence.
