Dance of the Seven Veils

This is a Covid Safe Ticket event! What do you need?Salomé’s Dance of the Seven Veils has sent generations reeling. Throughout the ages, Oscar Wilde’s femme fatale who also inspired Richard Strauss for his shocking opera, caused a lot of stir. In Dance of the Seven Veils, director Aïda Gabriëls invites musicians Colin H. Van Eeckhout (CHVE, Amenra), Pieter-Jan Van Assche (Innerwoud) and soprano Astrid Stockman to fiddle with the deeply human figure of Salomé. Within a theatrical total work of art, dancer German Jauregui immerses into their ecstatic soundscape, surrendering to the primal forces and fears of the female icon sculptor Rui Barros manipulates and gets manipulated by. During the pandemic, ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’ resided in AB for a few days to prepare this performance. The outright impressive result will be presented this evening. Concept & regie: Aïda GabriëlsMuziek: Astrid Stockman, Pieter-Jan Van Assche & Colin H. van EeckhoutDans: German JaureguiLive scenografie: Rui BarrosLibretto: Ylona SupèrDramaturgie: Ylona Supèr & Tessa VannieuwenhuyzeKostuumontwerp Kjell de Meersman & Noa KapchitzLichtontwerp: Davy DeschepperGeluid: Korneel MoreauxStage techniek: Sam VerlindenProductiemanagement: Sebastiaan PeetersProductie: oesterCo-productie: Muziektheater Transparant, LOD muziektheater, Ancienne Belgique & PerpodiumIn samenwerking met: Kunstencentrum Vooruit & Inspiratum/Axel VervoordtMet de steun van de Vlaamse Gemeenschap© Anton Coene
