World premiere of MUSIC FOR BARS, a 60-minute transformation of the sounds, movements, and social interactions of a bar near you. With Slagwerk Den Haag and Club Guy & Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club.
“Music For Bars explores the gradual amplification (and eventual distortion) of sonic, physical, and social elements of the bar. The evening features 6 performers from Slagwerk Den Haag and Club Guy & Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club, bartenders and waiters from the bar, and YOU the patron, in a wild mixture of performance styles. Dance and music improv, imitation and instruction of the patrons, anthropologist Ray Oldenburg, Aphex Twin colliding with Louis Andriessen & Martijn Padding, Dawn of MIDI colliding with a new percussion trio by Brendan Faegre. This is a participatory, genre-defying experience, emphasizing the democratizing role that bars have played throughout history. Drinking is strongly encouraged.”
