TRICKSTER performs: la donna e mobile – woman is fickle
In WORM’s Avantgardistic State we regularly provide space for theatre makers to explore their own limits. From February 14th until the 20th TRICKSTER is residing in UBIK for some pre-research. They’ll conclude this work with a ‘spectral’ presentation on February 18th: a sort of pre-image of the final opera in 2018. On February 17th they will perform a small teaser in the Performance Bar during the Kunstavond in het Witte de Withkwartier.
This coming year (2017/2018) TRICKSTER will be working towards an opera: Heroines will be killed. An ab-lib opera to be more precise. The musical term ad libitum (from latin: at one’s pleasure) is an indication in a score that a passage can be spontaneously interpreted by the performer. And this, dear reader, is of course the natural modus operandi of TRICKSTER!
Via several residencies throughout the country the performance collective will be working on different components of opera: image, text, sound. The final goal is to create an aural and visual ‘spectracle’ about the undoing of women in opera.
