We believe that space and light need to be programmed intentionally alongside the music performed in a concert. Harnessing the artistic potential of architecture and lighting design generates more accessible, immediate, and visceral meetings of performer and audience. CAVE brings together two 20th-century works for ensemble and vocalists based on texts by Plato, performed in the world’s first underground watertight cylindrical structure.
DE STAAT (1976)
FOR LARGE ENSEMBLE AND FOUR WOMEN’S VOICES BY LOUIS ANDRIESSEN, TEXT BY PLATO
FOR CHAMBER ORCHESTRA AND SOPRANO BY ERIK SATIE, TEXT BY PLATO, TRANSLATED BY VICTOR COUSIN
