Club Fluxus: But What About – Disrupted Transmissions

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH TIVOLIVREDENBURG

Disrupted Transmissions is the title of the programme devised by But What About (BWA), a promising ensemble based in The Hague, in collaboration with singer/composer Aurélie Lierman. The programme’s leitmotiv is language and communication, or miscommunication. The work composed by Lierman especially for BWA started from a collaboration that began already during the Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2018. The theme of the evening – disrupted transmissions – is perfectly suited to Club Fluxus, where a degree of recalcitrance is more than welcome.

Fluxus, which means ‘fluid’ or ‘constantly changing’, is a series in Club Nine organized in collaboration with TivoliVredenburg. This series focuses on young ensembles and musicians and consists of programmes containing a whole lot of new repertoire showcasing the latest developments in contemporary music. Where possible, the composers will be present and will discuss their own work. The small-scale and informal set-up places the audience in very close contact with the performers.
