Le jardin des graves et aigus

Le jardin des graves et aigus

A PARTY IN THE BOTANIQUE
Performance with 30 performers, 1 cow, 1 donkey, some sheep, chickens and 1 grand piano

Le Jardin des graves et des aigus confronts and blends dance, music and theatre while making use of different sites at the Botanique (Botanic Gardens) in Brussels. In the corridors and gardens, the audience is disturbed by performers resembling carnivorous plants waiting for prey. In the Rotunde, baroque singers challenge Latin American dancers. In the Orangerie, amongst chicken, sheep, a donkey, a cow and a grand piano, a burlesque finale is given. A deliberate choice is made in favor of a hybrid event rather than purity of form.

PRESS

Séduisant, décalé, amusant, Le jardin des graves et aigus entretenu par Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski et Claudio Bernardo souligne la beauté multiple que le Botanique renferme, se transformant en musée vibrant, en rassemblement tribal ou en cabaret délirant.

Un événement hybride enthousiasmant, drôle, léger, juste décoiffant.
