Piazzolla's Tango Seasons Project

Cappella Gabetta and charismatic Bandoneon-virtuoso Mario Stefano Pietrodarchi are crossing boarders and entering in a fascinating world of sound: the first time in our time an orchestra is performing a programm of Piazzolla and Vivaldi on period instruments! The richness of natural harmonics in playing on gut-strings and period instruments is offering a new sound-experience to the listeners. Another new element of this project is the transcription of Piazzolla’s “4 Seasons” for solo-Bandoneon, violin and orchestra and a virtuso final coda arranged and composed by Roberto Molinelli.
The programme has been performed in various European concert halls such as Baden-Baden, Munich and Basel. Argentinian-born violinist and leader Andras Gabetta and Italian Bandoneon-virtuoso Mario Stefano Pietrodarchi are pleased to present this extraordinary project.

Whist

A physical theatre and virtual reality production, Whist, is an exciting and digitally immersive feast to your senses. Touring to Asia from 2020 onwards.

Journey into the unconscious mind as interactive theatre and virtual reality combine.
“What happens when the desires hidden in the dark corners of your mind are suddenly brought to light? What if they have been the driving force of your choices all this while?”
WHIST tells the fictional story of a family, characters of which inspired by Japanese Artist Shuji Terayama and Sigmund Freud’s real case studies, and their dreams, fears and desires unveiled through physical theatre. Audi- ences are invited on a journey into the unconscious mind, where their instincts will guide them to see the story from different perspectives.
This mesmerising hour-long experience merges Physical Theatre, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies, in an environment that blurs the boundaries between consciousness and unconsciousness, reality and fiction, the physical and the virtual. Through art and 3D sound installation coupled with cinematic and interactive 360° film, viewers will be immersed in a surreal world of unfolding dreams and fears.
