Imagine it happening to you: constantly being confused with someone else on stage. It has happened to Jessie Marino. People kept thinking she was her good friend, flautist and composer Natacha Diels. In Rot Blau, this personality switch has been taken to the extreme. Another visual spectacle is Simon Steen-Andersen's Study for String Instrument #1, interesting for either a blind listener or a deaf viewer. One requisite is needed: a drum set the size of a dollhouse, complete with electronics. In Natacha Diels’ An Economy of Means, it is from this small but ingenious setup that the percussionist emerges into a veritable one-man band. In 1984, It’s OK! Jennifer Walshe carries a giant projection screen and a no less substantial bass amplifier. Finally, especially for this programme, Cathy van Eck has produced a new work, Silver Breath, in which the musicians make intriguing use of microphones and aluminium foil.
