N°25 | NIGHT — STAGED NIGHT
NIGHT — STAGED NIGHT
To bring a musical work up-to-date ? This is the challenge the young Danish composer Simon Steen Andersen takes full on with Night – Staged Night – an intelligent and jubilant show where classical pieces are being reinterpreted with irresistible disrespect and undeniable tenderness.

A game of destruction that tries to abolish all historical distance: one after the other, the works of Bach, Mozart, Schumann and Ravel go through a process of rewriting that not only defies audiences’ expectations, but also reveals the hidden musical aspects of pieces we may know by heart, letting us inhabit for a while that place of memory they harbour.

Chosen for their common theme (the “night”), these classical pieces collide and interact with Simon Steen Andersen’s music in a hybrid and fascinating choreography, aided by significant technological reinforcement. A way of examining in one gesture, on the aftermath of Walter Benjamin’s essay, “the work of art in the age of technological reproduction.”
