Erratic, night dance (The nomadic baroque)
Three artists with all the right reasons to ignore each other share the stage. They come from radically different horizons. The idea came from the dancer, Merlin Nyakam, who also sings the music of his native bush.
What will a baroque flutist and an electro-acoustician do with him? They themselves do not know, because what brings them together is the taste for improvisation and risk taking.
We will explore together what the surprises of some will trigger in others. What if we could only hear from the flute those small parasitic noises that make its charm and that electronics can magnify? What if a piece of Bach inspired an African trance? And what if the computer had the power to turn the flute into balafon?
