Live Concerts:
Bal Masqué

A participation event with dance, music and text. You will participate in the dances, which will be learned in situ. The regulations concerning health and safety will be followed and safe guarded.

Have you also missed dancing to live music, meeting people and interacting with them more than just circumstantially from a distance?

In the past many people lived equally isolated lives. The bal masque, with its beautiful music, swirling dances and social events, was one of the few places where social interaction, distanced by conventions from the past, took place.

In our event we invite you to experience a bal masque inspired by this past. Once you enter through the doors, you will be one of the attendants of the ball, albeit a practice ball where the dancing master will teach you (a simple part of) the dances. Through little texts we heighten the experience and if you want, you can get a small, tiny action or a few words sent to you beforehand, so you can even have a few seconds of acting as part of the ball.

In no other period of our lives may we be so connected to the isolated lives of the visitors of these balls masques. Come and experience the mask recontextualised, dance with us to improvised music and find out what happens at our bal masque.

Live Concerts:
Game of Themes

Next weekend we are performing our Game of Themes programme in Amsterdam and The Hague!

A concert in the format of an improvised classical music competition inspired by ideas from the audience.

Already in Ancient Greek times musicians competed: to get a job, to show off, or because an emperor thought it would be entertaining. And later Mozart competed with Clementi, Bach was challenged by Marchand, Scarlatti and Handel competed and so on…

Improvisation was amongst the most important ways to show yourself the true winner. In Game of Themes you experiences the excitement of the audiences from the past, giving themes and ideas, finding out in the moment what the musicians can do with this new musical idea.

The ideas from the past are enriched by the ideas of long form improvisation theatre, where small games and audience suggestions slowly work towards a longer story, which, in a way, everyone has created together.

How many ways are there to throw the ball- the ball being the theme in the playground of improvisation? How many balls can we keep in the air? And how do we make a story from these different balls?
