Thierry De Mey is a composer in perpetual research and unbridled inventiveness.
With this transdisciplinary show for eight percussionists, Thierry De Mey plays as much on gesture as on sound for a great moment of instrumental choreography.
Premiered on September 29th 2019 at the Musica Festival, Timelessness is a true “artistic and political manifesto”, in the words of the composer. This show is woven of gestures as much as sounds : in counterpoint to instrumental pieces, Table Music, Silent Must be, Floor Patterns, or Hands, choreographed by Wim Vandekeybus, make the musician’s body the eloquent instrument of a silent music.
