I’m a Creative Animal - Singer and Conductor Barbara Hannigan

Directed by
Barbara Seiler

Produced by
Markus Wicker

The audience in the upper crust concert venue KKL at the Lucerne Festival must have felt bemused: after singing classical Mozart arias, blonde soprano Barbara Hannigan returns to the stage in a Dominatrix costume, black wig and PVC boots and proceeds to sing AND conduct György Ligetis „Mysteries of the Macabre“.
The audience celebrates Barbara Hannigan`s disturbing performance with standing ovations. Critics are struggling to describe her captivating impact. The film „I`m a creative animal“ follows her backstage in an attempt to reveal the secret behind this wild, fearless and remarkably versatile woman.
