Gaudeamus Terrapolis: Celia Swart

Terrapolis: a fictional world in which borders, relationships and connections are constantly changing and being discussed. In this concert series, we present musical performances that redefine the idea of what a musical performance can be and can signify. In this third edition, a project by composer Celia Swart and more to be announced.

Celia Swart – The Mirror In My Room
The promising Dutch young composer Celia Swart tells contemporary stories using film, animation, music and stage imagery. In her new performance The Mirror in my Room oboist Arthur Klaassens enters into a tense dialogue with his own reflection, played by oboist and double Vincent van Wijk. A visual and musical story about ambition, autonomy and belonging. Swart’s music intimately reflects the alienation between mirror image and reality.
