BANG! 'A la recherche de temps' I & II - Serge Verstockt & ChampdAction
Serge Verstockt made a new version of his acclaimed multimedia composition A la recherche de temps, in dialogue with video artist Koen Theys.
Serge Verstockt and Koen Theys also made a new version of A la recherche de temps for viola, a commission by de Bijloke in Ghent.
Serge Verstockt and ChampdAction are joined by the world-renowned Ensemble Modern. Their 2 soloists Jaan Bossier and Megumi Kasakawa engage in a dialogue with prerecorded video footage from ChampdAction/Studio.
While composing 'A la recherche de temps II - Doloroso', Verstockt was confronted with a world at war, facing a shift to the right, nationalism, a refugee crisis and terrorism. This resulted in a piece in which the 'Human Rights' are 'whispered' by the viola in part one. The tone gradually transforms into a wild punk concert.
The project is a coproduction between ChampdAction and Ensemble Modern and the pieces will be performed by both ensembles.
RSVP FACEBOOK EVENT
Due to the construction work currently being undertaken, KultuurKaffee has opted for a nomadic existence and, together with a guest curator, assembles twice a year a multidisciplinary programme of events at various locations dotted around the city of Brussels.
During 6 weeks our guest curator works around a specific theme. He or she chooses different artists from several artistic fields to create and put together an impressive line up. Each time we search for a unique location in the heart of Brussels that harmonizes with the philosophy of the program.
This spring artist and musician Joris Van De Moortel will be the guest curator of BANG! festival #5.
Joris Van de Moortel will bring an ode to painter Pieter Paul Bruegel The Elder during BANG! The artist and his guests enter into dialogue with Bruegel's allegorical painting: “Twelve Proverbs” (1558-1560).
Every evening is dedicated to the voicing of a proverb of Bruegel, this coupled to a different key.
