what a circus!

About this project

The project of MIKAMO Central European Chamber Orchestra brings the audience an immersive journey into a fantasy world. 

Takasugi brings the audience to the sideshow at Coney Island in New York, where the small movements, gestures have an equal role as the veil of surprising sounds. In Beil’s Swap, the musicians juggle with nine instruments, with virtual doubles. Périodes is similar to our heart rate, walk or respiration, never strictly periodical, according to Grisey. Pesson compared his work, inspired by the iconic song of the French revolution, to a Renaissance cabinet de curiosités, a treasure chest protecting the precious pieces of a collector.
