Musical Utopias #3 Conversations | CANCELLED
Joey Marijs meets Feadan McCall, Michel van der Aa
Maya Verlaak meets Avenue Azure – Roulette – world premiere
van Dijk & Sjupp meet … Dr Moon
Diderik Wagenaar meets Pavla Beranová – Tam-tam
An evening of creative conversations in the form of duos (street dance with percussion, live VJ-ing sparring with improvisation, and a roulette game between piano and guitar) builds towards the closing work Diderik Wagenaar’s Tam Tam, where Ensemble Klang XL divided in two groups of musicians are shrouded in the light art of Pavla Beranová.
Street dancer Feadan McCall adds her artistic vision to Joey Marijs’s interpretation of work by Michel van der Aa. Maya Verlaak works with pianist Saskia Lankhoorn and guitarist Pete Harden (Avenue Azure) on a musical game of Roulette. And hypnotising, bizarre images are remixed live with semi-improvised music in Dr Moon a spontaneous audio-visual performance by Van Dijk & Sjupp with special guests.
To close out the festival, a classic of Hague School minimalism from Diderik Wagenaar. Originally written for the Hoketus ensemble in 1979, Tam Tam is performed by Ensemble Klang XL, divided in two groups, and observed through the contemporary lens of Pavla Beranová lighting artistry.
