A show of ancient music that will not leave you indifferent
Under Construction has become the exploration of the recorder possibilities, in all its glory: Over 70 instruments are arrayed across the stage. The musicians themselves verge on excellence, as instrumentalists, but also as performers, appearing from behind their instrument, going beyond being a mere executer, not only interpreting the music, but wrapping it in emotion and meaning. Under construction also moves in space. True to the title’s promise, we draw from a blank page, to be gradually filled with music, movement, technology and image. The objective is always to bridge the gap between stage and audience, in order to surprise them with the many possibilities of the recorder and its repertoire.
We like music. We like the stage. We want to surprise our audience with every performance and send them home satisfied and with a good impression. We aim for novelty, innovation and breaking down barriers. We therefore put forward a project that will leave no one untouched.
The stage design plays a key part in our performance. We do not wish to follow the established rules for classical concerts; we want to créate a new concept of performance, where lighting, choreography, costumes and scenography are all equally important.
We don’t make music. We don’t do theatre
We do Windu!
