8: METAMORPHOSIS

2019, A coproduction with OPERADAGEN ROTTERDAM and ITA

The world around us is continuously evolving. Fixed forms become fluid over time and new forms arise, also the frozen will melt.

With 8: METAMORPHOSIS Nicole Beutler proposes a performance & concert undergoing constant transformation and change. The composition, form and content of The Cold Song by Henry Purcell form the base for a reflection on the emergence of a new time: 8: METAMORPHOSIS is a danced and sung ritual at the end of patriarchy with seven male dancers & singers and virtuoso percussionist Frank Rosaly. Together with the long term collaborators - electronic composer Gary Shepherd and lighting designer Minna Tiikkainen - they translate the radical baroque composition into an organically evolving musical explosion, transforming the theatre and turning it inside out.
