Bravade & Co: The better to see you with
Mon 21.8. 19:00
Bravade & Co’s The better to see you with offers cross-artistic fireworks as renaissance and baroque music meet modern music, contemporary dance and multimedia art. A brainchild of the recorder quartet Bravade, the performance shakes up pre-existing notions about recorder music and utilises the entire scale of the unique instruments.
Premiering at Almi Hall, the multimedia work, composed for Bravade by Antti Auvinen, spins an intriguing musical web where video projection and the beautiful sound of the recorder intertwine. Auvinen’s Autuus, which premiered at Helsinki Festival in 2015, received the 2016 Teosto Prize. A virtuoso quartet composed for Bravade by Sebastian Fagerlund is also performed.
The common thread in the multisensory performance is identity and its nodes. At which point do we drift into learned roles? How do we want to be seen? The psychological journey into making art and personal boundaries becomes accessible through interviews edited by Minna Lindgren during the creation process of the performance.
