Lecture performance

“Invisible action”, Chryssi Dimitriou

As part of the Domain Salvatore Sciarrino at Concertgebouw Brugge, Chryssi Dimitriou will hold a lecture performance focusing on the visual aspects of a musical performance.

The birth of theatre necessarily entailed the birth of the spectator. What happens when we watch or are being watched? Or when we watch a performer, but see ourselves, as if we are looking into a mirror? In what ways are our understanding, awareness and memory determined by the presence or absence of visual information? In her investigation of the visual aspects of a musical performance, flautist Chryssi Dimitriou searches for an answer to these questions. In this lecture-performance, Dimitriou explores these questions with the help of Salvatore Sciarrino’s flute compositions. The perfect introduction to the Domain Salvatore Sciarrino!

This lecture performance will be held in English. Tickets cost €7 and can be purchased here, but entrance is free of charge for ticket holders to one of the Domain Salvatore Sciarrino concerts.
