Theatre branoul the hague
Every month, the New European Ensemble brings to you a new mix of literature, poetry and music in Salon Branoul
The Belgian writer Charlotte van den Broeck (born 1991) published her second book of poetry Nachtroer in 2017. The poems are like nomadic journeys. The book is named after a night shop in Antwerpen that forms the departure point for the poems that are connected as part of a journey detailing love, loss and estragement. Bassonist Amber Mallee performs works for bassoon solo and bassoon and piano mirroring the mysterious night journey in the poetry. The sorrowful Elegie by Jacques Hétu alongside works by the Hungarian composer Gyögry Kurta and Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa.
“With poetic imagery she searchers for awe and silence. What makes this cycle powerful is the way recognizable images and language are welded together with great speed resulting in a kind of suffocation.”
Readings: Charlotte van den Broeck (Dutch)
Music: Amber Mallee bassoon – works of Jacques Hétu, György Kurtag and Toshio Hosokawa
Branoul Theatre in The Hague is a small venue like you can find them in Berlin and Paris. In one of the most beautiful parts of The Hague you can enjoy intimate performances. With only place for 80 people, directly in front of the stage, you can almost smell the actors and musicians.
New European Ensemble is supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten (from 2017) and the city of The Hague
