Musik schafft Raum – für Emotionen und Gedanken, aber auch für Aufmerksamkeit und Vermittlung. Wir haben uns dafür entschieden, diesen Raum zu nutzen und ein Stück davon den SOS-Kinderdörfern weltweit zu widmen. Das Ziel ist es, die Menschen, die wir durch unsere Musik erreichen, auch für SOS begeistern zu können.

 

Ihr habt im Juni noch dreimal die Möglichkeit, euch GISELLE in der Oper Leipzig anzuschauen:

9. Juni, 17 Uhr

12. Juni, 19:30 Uhr

29. Juni, 19 Uhr

 

Die Vorbereitungen laufen auf Hochtouren: 10 Vorstellungen zwischen dem 20. April und dem 29. Juni in der Oper Leipzig. Wir freuen uns auf euer Kommen!

 

We had a lovely time at Exalto Studio's in Haarlem, recording Michel van der Aa's wonderful new music for his upcoming VR opera „From Dust." The visual component will be captured in June. Stay tuned!

MERIDIANS
 
a whole-body exploration of traditional tunes and cultural identity
 
A new stage programme, which has been growing for a year and which will have its preview Lunalia Festival in Belgium on 30 April.
In this interdisciplinary program we merge different cultures with our own and consider the question of what connects people to the songs of their homeland. Which dreams unite them? Which stories give them the strength to fulfil those dreams? And how can music connect with one’s homeland in this globalised world?
 
In preparation for this stage production, we reached out to people from around the world to survey their relationship with folk music. Thus bridges were built, finding common ground between melodies from a variety of different cultures. A series of musical scenes give space to each song, combining traditional folk tunes with newly-written compositions. Characteristic arrangements, vocal variation, linguistic focus, and elements of performance reveal the mysteries of each culture.
 

So excited to announce that we are going to be part of the production ‘Giselle’ by Leipziger Ballett at Oper Leipzig in spring/summer 2024.
