PROGRAM / Big Bang Ghent 2018
Sunday 28 October 2018
Joana Gama & Victor Hugo Pontes /
Nocturno is a stunning performance of visual and musical dexterity from Portugal, which drew the BIG BANG audience in Lisbon into the night and left them bewitched. One pianist and two performers are your guide in the world of dreams, lullabies and moonlight. But also in the world of nightmares, monsters under the bed and rain that keeps you awake. The night is the backdrop for the imagination. Shadows, darkness, silence, street noises and movements in the dark, they fascinate and open the door to wonderful fantasies and unexpected fears.
The performance starts with a nocturne: a melancholy piano piece from the Romantic era. A grand piano is therefore the beating heart of the performance and promises beautiful, recently composed music. An unforgettable trip.
