Musical Utopias 6 | The Thrill of Losing Control (Oceanic, Maya Verlaak & Ensemble Klang)
Musical Utopias is Ensemble Klang and the Korzo’s annual festival that brings together music-makers and artists from multiple disciplines all striving to build new worlds. It is an invitation to share in a hopeful journey into the unknown, a journey that looks optimistically to the future.
This year the performances revolve around the theme of losing control. Works in which control has been relaxed or relinquished in order to uncover new and unexpected environments. Which new worlds, atmospheres and structures can you discover if you dare to take a step back, to lean away completely? The works explore how it feels to stand still, to press pause, so that you can continue forward on newly uncovered avenues.
20.15-20.55 (Grote Zaal) – Conditions – Maya Verlaak (Ensemble Klang)
22.00-00.30 (Grote Zaal) – Oceanic + Ensemble Klang
Maya Verlaak’s new work Conditions places the six performers of Ensemble Klang in an unstable environment. The musicians shape the conditions of the virtual space, performing in reaction to its ever-changing dimensions.
To close out the festival, Job Oberman (Oceanic) & Ensemble Klang turn the Korzo into a night club, creating an sonically immersive, and physically ecstatic dance event.
