Humour, memory and joy, in music and on screen.
On stage Carlos Kleiber and Sergiu Celibidache, Miles Davis and Bruckner, Stockhausen and Beethoven, and one of the most beautiful choreographies by Thomas Hauert with his company Zoo, filmed by Thierry De Mey.
The opening night of the ManiFeste festival is a huge montage, a whirlwind that spreads from image to music. The young Danish composer Simon Steen-Andersen has devised an ultra-virtuoso collage in which the orchestra, jazz band and vocal ensemble play with a series of living archives – a profound and hilarious journey into our own musical memory.
The Summer Playlist includes everything from Ravel’s Valse, danced on the rooftops of Brussels. Twists and turns, a summer playlist where the eye listens.
Maurice Ravel, La Valse (with screening of the film by Thierry De Mey to choreography by Thomas Hauert)
