September 30 | 18:30 & 20:00
As part of the ›Sprekend Lichaam‹ [›Speaking Body‹] exhibition by visual artist Salomé Roodenburg in Factor IJ in Amsterdam, a performance of ›Een oog in zee‹ [›An eye in the sea‹] will take place on 30 September, the music-theater work in progress, for which Salomé wrote the libretto. Amidst the exhibited work, which, like the libretto, is inspired by the myth of Ariadne, we give a preview of the music-theater work that will be premiered in the spring of 2022 and for which I am composing the music.
›Een oog in zee‹ is a modern adaptation of the Greek tragedy of Ariadne, performed by a Helena van Heel - mezzo-soprano, Vincent van Amsterdam - accordion, Fokke van Heel - horns and Kenzo Kusuda - performer.
The musicians act on stage and a world can be gained here if, as we do, you develop music-theater from and with the instrumentalists on stage, each of whom is a musical character.
Also with Salomé Roodenburg - libretto and stage design, Zephyr Brüggen - direction, and Stichting Noorderklank - production.
