Bug (Body Quartet)

Premiere
June 6 through Sat 10 June 2017,
8:30 p.m.
Les Brigittines, Bruxelles

A family dinner. A pleasant atmosphere. Father, mother, son, lulled by their songs, their repetitive movements, their leitmotivs that patiently weave together their connections. The Other arrives with his “worrying strangeness”.  Now four, a new composition is created. The beautiful harmony is over. The “bug” creates his work, demanding the others to change their performance.

Using four actors, four composers, and IRCAM technologies that enable the creation of “augmented” voices and bodies, Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski continues her exploration of the possibilities of musical theater, applying here the gestural language of the string quartet to bodies.
