François Sarhan "Situations" @ Festival Musica

  • Rue des Pucelles Strasbourg (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I will be part of a team of 2 percussionists and 2 actors performing a large assortment of François Sarhan’s “Situations,” short pieces that largely fall in a gray area between music and theater. We will be performing these pieces guerrilla-style throughout Strasbourg as part of Festival Musica. You might see us on the street, in the tram, before or after a concert, in a shop window at the mall, in the bar…you never know.

Something Out There @ Bregenz Festival

16
to Aug 17

Something Out There @ Bregenz Festival

As part of ensemble Something Out There, the culmination of a season-long working process with composer François Sarhan to develop a performance where the performers are equally actors and musicians.

Inspired by the Russian avant-garde and by weird and wonderful objets trouvés from European cultural history, grotesque and humorous worlds will come into being. Figures like Fyodor Dostoevsky's fantastical narrator Bobok and the eccentric Professor Henry Glaçon flit in and out of the proceedings.
