In 2018 and 2019 Jerzy Bielski will be artist in residence with Gaudeamus. The composer, who is from Poland originally, has performed his expressive musical theatre shows several times at our festival. In 2015 he performed with (not only) Futurists, with whom he won the Amsterdam Fringe Award shortly afterwards. In 2016 he made another musical theatre production, with the wondrous name + – / , 1 = _ ; X %.
As artist in residence at Gaudeamus he is given the opportunity to develop his expressive musical theatre work, helped by the regulation called “Nieuwe Makers van het Fonds Podiumkunsten”. Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2017 is the kick-off of his residency. During the final concert on the 10th of September the first part of his large-scale musical theatre production will be performed. The entire production will premiere in 2019.
