50 years Centre Henri Pousseur
Centre Henri Pousseur celebrates its 50th anniversary this year ! A milestone that we obviously do not want to pass unnoticed, and underline with a number of special productions and collaborations. On the programme in February wille be Buñuels L’Âge d’Or with music for 6 percussionists, piano and electronics by Martin Matalon; in the Concertgebouw Bruges we will create new work for cello and electronics by Daan Janssens, with Arne Deforce (cello).
And before we release a new edition of the festival Images Sonores, we’ll present in April, together with the outstanding musicians of the ensemble Revue Blanche another new and ambitious score by composer Daan Janssens as part of the film project A Page of Madness (the silent japanese cult film of 1926), to be seen and heard in Flagey, in NTGent, and in the Muziekgebouw aan het Ij (Amsterdam).
