Spaceship Ensemble

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

Spaceship Ensemble, who are doing a residency at Gaudeamus this year, present a musical spectacle inspired by A Treatise On Evolution by one of Holland’s most iconic scientists, the theoretical physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft. A series of drawings of futuristic creatures that show how animals could evolve. In a musical programme reminiscent of Camille Saint-Saëns’ Le Carnaval des Animaux, the ensemble plays a series of short pieces each of which depicts one of ‘t Hooft’s creatures.

The Spaceship residency is made possible by the Performing Arts Fund NL.
