Duende

Gijs Scholten van Aschat, Eric Vaarzon Morel en Eric Vloeimans

Shows

Sorry, there are currently no available shows.

In the run-up to the Flamenco Biennale we show the Duende performance. Eric Vaarzon Morel, Gijs Scholten van Aschat and Eric Vloeimans embrace the language and music of the south. They end up in Spain, Portugal and Brazil, where they meet Lorca, flamenco, duende, Pessoa, saudade and Drummond de Andrade.

Grote Zaal
Duration: 2h

Together they duel at the cutting edge. All three with their strongest weapon: Vloeimans and Vaarzon Morel through their music, Scholten van Aschat using his language. Words become rhythm, music becomes language, boundaries blur.

Theaterkrant: “The clever thing about Duende is that you believe in these men: you see the dusty village square in a southern country in front of you, shimmering in the afternoon sun, a villager nodding off in the shadow of a tree. The yellow, orange and red lighting completes the southern atmosphere.”

From the press

“Poetry and music with ecstatic inspiration.” (Theaterkrant ****)
