Minerals

    With ‘Minerals’, composer Mathias Coppens redefines the traditional relationship between musicians and listeners. Artists on stage, consumers in the audience? In this age of co-creation, that atavism needs to be shaken up. Together with BRYGGEN – Bruges strings, we interrogate tomorrow’s music.

    Weg van Bach

      In december 2022, cellist Benjamin Glorieux went on a week-long journey from Arnstadt to Lübeck. With his cello on his back, Glorieux followed the same route that Bach took 300 years ago, in order to hear his great hero Buxtehude play. Bach’s cello suites formed the rhythmic thread during his walks: “As I heard the music sounded in my mind or played live, I collected reflections, ideas and insights that will guide the live performance.”

          Holographic Duality

             All is matter. From the tiniest element to the largest astrophysical object, matter is at the heart of it all. But how do we unify both? Elementary particles and Black holes are seemingly incompatible, but shouldn’t we just look differently?

            The Solitary One

              There you are, solitary in the middle of a pitch-black hole. How did you get there, and how could you get out? You’re shouting, screaming, signaling to the outside world, but everything seems to return to you like a boomerang. Nothing can escape the horizon, or does it? Is there something or someone out there who might see or hear your experience inside?

              To the Edge of Time

                Time is the most mundane thing in the world. We all use it every day; we waste it, save it, and enjoy it. It’s just out there, like a big clock, ticking away. But what is time? What is it made of? Did it have a beginning? Will it ever end? Does it cycle around? Can we do without time?

                Sichtlaut – Common Grounds

                  Common Grounds is a cross-disciplinary improvisation performance in which the performers assess how the relationship between visual language, language, movement and sound can be redesigned, materialised again in real time and in relation to each other , the audience and the performance space.

                  The End of Space and Time

                    String theory in its many incarnations provides a theoretical framework to answer some of the deepest questions, often with surprising results. At the same time, it raises some disturbing new questions, making painfully clear how little we understand of our Universe.
