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.

Moving Guitars Nederlandse première

Moving Guitars is a performance where music, images, and dance enter into a dialogue with each other. Movement is the one element uniting them. Refined ancient dances played on baroque guitar by Izhar Elias are set against rough new sounds on the electric guitar by composer Florian Magnus Maier.
