  • Pascal Dusapin: metamorphosis of an oeuvre

    For composer Pascal Dusapin music is all about, ‘devenir une autre ' – metamorphosis - in its creation, playing and listening. Whereas in the 1980s the influence of the abstract sound world of his teacher Iannis Xenakis was still clearly to be heard, Dusapin's style gradually changed into broad, lilting musical phrases. Nowadays, because of his fascination for ethnic music, he composes oriental sounding melodies as metamorphoses of authentic music traditions. … Read more

  • French impressionism

    Girl power! The four spirited ladies of Quatuor Zaïde and the solo harpist of the Wiener Philharmoniker join forces. Anneleen Lenaerts' harp brings the colours, flavours and enchanted atmosphere of Ravel’s and Debussy's perfumed music back to life. With Caplet's Conte fantastique, based on a mysterious story by Edgar Allan Poe, things get decidedly spookier. The central character is Death, who wanders the night looking for a victims...… Read more

  • Theater De Spiegel

    In a cosy play area, which is both a unique music lab and an oasis of peace, the very youngest explore sound and music. Playing, building, discovering… Big eyes, busy hands open mouths, small steps… The children are carried along, at their own pace by what they see, feel and hear. Three musicians accompany that playful rhythm. Sometimes they do nothing, sometimes they play notes, but they always delight and surprise. … Read more

  • Ferrabosco, Strauss & Cage

    A metamorphosis can be huge and conspicuous, or barely discernible, so you’d better stay alert during these three short concerts. Daan Vandewalle’s piano, for instance, mysteriously mutates into a one-man percussion ensemble. The strings continuously transform the sound of Strauss's intense Metamorphosen by moving slowly around the audience. And the Hathor Consort turn complex polyphony inward. Nothing is, everything becomes… and that is the only certainty.… Read more

  • Nadar Ensemble

    Video, electronics, live sound-manipulation and the strangest performance techniques: today’s composers have an extensive arsenal with which to surprise the listener. Nadar Ensemble are enthusiast participants in these (multimedia) voyages of discovery. During these concerts, that adventure gets closer to us than ever: resident musicians Nadar Ensemble fan out across Bruges to play their favourite works in people’s living rooms. Even the composers come to listen!… Read more

  • Nadar Ensemble

    In 1900 it took film pioneer Georges Méliès hours cutting and pasting to conjure up six doppelgangers on the silver screen. Nowadays, we manufacture multiple online identities on Facebook, Instagram or Tinder, and Anderlecht football club makes a remarkable transfer by signing a professional esports gamer. Besides the magical aspects of this contemporary wonderland, Nadar also explore its jet-black dark side...… Read more

  • LOD muziektheater, Josse De Pauw, Koenraad Tinel & Frederik Neyrinck

    According to legend, L'Inconnue de la Seine was an unidentified young woman who drowned in that Parisian river. A plaster cast was made of her smile, but no one ever discovered her identity. L'Inconnue soon became a mythical figure, reinvented time and again by different artists. Composer Frederik Neyrinck, librettist Sabryna Pierre and director Nathalie Teirlinck also felt the attraction of this drowned muse. Masks, doppelgangers and water in a gripping libretto that flows between dream and consciousness, between fantasy literature and thriller.… Read more

  • Muziektheater Transparant & Théâtre de la Croix-Rousse

    In Calamity/Billy legendary heroine Calamity Jane and notorious outlaw Billy the Kid are brought back to life in an unusual and intimate way. Jane is resurrected through fragmented stories, secrets and excerpts from letters. Billy is raised through eyewitness accounts, newspaper articles, photographs and the breathtaking poetry of Michael Ondaatje. Their stories only flirt with the truth, but thanks to the sepia tones and rebellious lyricism of ‘European minimalist’ Gavin Bryars and his teacher Ben Johnston, they seem even more real than our childhood memories. … Read more
