29 June Try-out Spaceship Ensemble

Spaceship Ensemble, doing a residency at Gaudeamus in 2022, will try out its new musical spectacle The Carnival of Futuristic Animals on 29 June in Muziekhuis Utrecht. A performance inspired by A Treatise On Evolution by one of the Netherlands’ most iconic scientists, the theoretical physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft, who created a series of drawings showing how animals might evolve in the distant future. In a musical programme reminiscent of Camille Saint-Sans’ Le Carnaval des Animaux, the ensemble plays a series of short pieces, each depicting one of ‘t Hooft’s creatures.
