ALS JE JE HART VERLIEST, WAAR ZOEK JE DAN?

“Beautiful, distinctive, innovative, touching and compelling. A gem” Musical News

Na het overweldigende succes van Homebody komt ODD Continent dit seizoen opnieuw met een zinderende theaterbelevenis: Morning Blossoms.

Tien dansers, twaalf zangers en veertig live muzikanten van over de hele wereld brengen een indrukwekkend en meeslepend verhaal over de gevolgen van één van de grootste natuurrampen in de geschiedenis. Pak je kans en zie deze bijzondere, internationale productie vóórdat de rest van de wereld hem ontdekt.

Als de Japanse Asuka (Céline Purcell) van haar dochtertje wordt gescheiden door een tsunami, is ze vastbesloten haar dorpsgenoten bij te staan in de zoektocht naar hun vermiste kinderen. Als je je hart verliest, waar zoek je dan? Hoe ga je verder als het noodlot je treft? Hoe groot is de veerkracht van de mens?

Een universeel en bijtend actueel verhaal voor alle leeftijden, met choreografieën van Remi Wörtmeyer (1e solist bij het Nationale Ballet), met nieuwe muziek van Chloé Charody en Malcolm Rock, uitgevoerd door het Orkest van het Oosten en twee topsolisten.

Engels gezongen, Nederlands boventitels.

WHERE DO YOU LOOK WHEN YOUR HEART IS LOST?

“Beautiful, distinctive, innovative, touching and compelling. A gem” Musical News

ODD Continent follows the overwhelming success of last season’s Homebody with a brave new musical theatre experience: Morning Blossoms.

Bringing together 10 dancers, 12 singers and 40 live musicians from around the world, this heartfelt all-new production tells the epic true story of one of the great natural disasters of our time. Don’t miss your chance to see Morning Blossoms before the rest of the world!

When Asuka (Céline Purcell) is separated from her daughter by a tsunami, she must lead her community in the courageous search for their missing children. How long can you hold onto hope when disaster strikes? What’s the measure of human resilience? Where do you look when your heart is lost?

Morning Blossoms is a touching and topical story for all ages written by Malcolm Rock and Chloé Charody with choreography by Dutch National Ballet principal dancer Remi Wörtmeyer. Netherlands Symphony Orchestra performs the music with two leading soloists.

Sung in English with Dutch subtitles.

                                                    ODD Continent tart de wetten van de klassieke podiumkunsten en smeedt opera, dans en toneel tot een krachtig geheel – groter dan de som der delen. Met ambities gelegen in grand opéra en verhalend ballet, produceert ODD Continent theatrale producties die de eigentijdse geest prikkelen. ODD Continent beweegt zich vrij en werkt met verrassende partners. Het koestert een vruchtbare samenwerking met internationale kunstenaars en organisaties en bindt een nieuw publiek aan zich dat alle kunstvormen omarmt.

                                                    ODD Continent rewrites the rules of classical performance by uniting the prototypical stage arts – opera, dance and drama – to create an exhilarating whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. With ambitions rooted in grand opera and the story ballet, ODD Continent produces multifaceted theatre events that define our time and go boldly beyond the walls and conventions of the gilded opera house. ODD Continent moves freely and cooperates widely. It nurtures prolific partnerships with international artists and organisations while engaging an audience that crosses intrepidly between art-forms.
