Event in the past.
Ensemble Ensemble Modelo62
Composer Petra Strahovnik
Duration 90 min

Three works for soloist and ensemble on the theme of mental health

A Fractured Mind?, a triptych by the Slovenian composer Petra Strahovnik, explores the way we treat mental health in society. A combination of music, video, performance, and electronics reveals the underlying thoughts and emotions of someone with a mental illness. Artist Jürgen Fritz, who designed the work together with Strahovnik, intensively trained the musicians of Modelo62 for their performance art. This ensemble from The Hague has earned their widespread fame with their high-level, versatile, and innovative approach to contemporary experimental music. With this intensely personal work, Strahovnik tries to break a taboo.

Prior to the concert you can visit KOnStruKt # 18, a collaboration between students from the Royal Conservatoire and Slagwerk Den Haag, for free.

Suggestions

Les Filles de Illighadad

Frontvrouw Fatou Seidi Ghali is de enige Toeareg-gitariste uit Niger. Met hypnotiserende gitaarrifjes, bedwelmende meerstemmige zang en een voortbewegend ritme is de Toearegmuziek van Les Filles volledig van deze tijd.
