Festival Dag in de Branding | Follow (Igor C. Silva)
Who makes the news? You do. By clicking and sharing, your zeroes and ones determine what stories you see and which you don’t. But whose stories can you trust? Composer Igor C. Silva and writer Aaron Landsman explore the shifty language of truth in Follow, a multi-layered work, featuring video and electronics, performed by Stephanie Pan and Ensemble Klang.
News travels fast: it accelerates, goes viral, and soon nobody has control of it anymore. We swipe and follow and try to reflect how it connects to us. How does it feel to chase a truth, find it, lose it, and lose yourself in the process? In Follow, voices, sounds and lights ricochet, in a dizzying spectacle, enveloping the audience in waves.

During Festival Dag in de Branding in The Hague, the theatres, the Residentie Orkest and various ensembles will introduce you to the latest music. Three times a year they organize a festival full of discoveries at different locations in The Hague. Today’s makers are central. Meet the composers and chat with the musicians. What fascinates them and how is that reflected in their work?
Follow is a co-production of Ensemble Klang, Gaudeamus, Miso Music and Korzo, and is made possible with financial support from Performing Arts Fund NL, Gemeente Utrecht, Gemeente Den Haag, and the Prins Bernard Cultuurfonds (Reinbert de Leeuw Fonds).
