With Under construction, Windu offered a show which focused on human creation symbolized through the simple recorder. In this second show, the focus will be on a non-human, yet closely related concept: wind. Whether when using a hair dryer, drying clothes on the line, flying a kite or watching a dream catcher gently sway in the breeze, wind truly is ever-present in our daily lives. It is also this wind, of course, that brings life to recorders.
With Wind, the quartet takes a step forward in exploring the possibilities of the recorder, as well as combining other instruments and electronic music. The ensemble will continue to play music from the last 600 years, mixing early music with popular and contemporary music, finally bringing everything together on the stage. Windu’s musicians will once again be performers and not just interpreters. They will interact with video projections, perform choreographed routines, make costume changes as well as use a number of props and other stage resources. Wind reaffirms the goals and values of the original 2016 project and takes an important step forward by introducing additional and sophisticated staging, a greater combination of musical styles and more movement. As a result of this technical and artistic expansion, Windu’s team has also grown. Esther Chércoles (Costume Designer), Ana Pérez (Choreographer) and Álex Martín (Sound Designer) have all joined the team. Oriol Ibàñez (Light Designer and Technician) and Iban Beltran (Stage Director) return in the same roles.
Windu goes out in pursuit of wind… Let the adventure begin!
