3 thousand RIVERS - a multimedia opera

'3 thousand RIVERS: Voices in the Forest' is a multimedia opera by Victor Gama sung through the stories of people living in the rain forest. It offers a perspective on the environmental and social impacts of the current wave of industrialization underway in the rain forests of the Amazon, Chocó and the Andes in Colombia and Brazil.
For four years we have worked with local communities and invited singers who live along some of the main rivers in the Putumayo, Caquetá, Chocó and Pará to hear the voices of those who suffer these impacts first hand.
The work was developed in close cooperation and support with environmental and artist's organizations Amazon Conservation Team Colombia, Mas Arte Mas Acción and Flora ars+natura based in Bogotá. It was commissioned by the Prince Claus Fund (3 thousand RIVERS: prelude, 2013) and by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (3 thousand RIVERS: Voices in the Forest, 2016).
