Nicht Schlafen (formerly Mahler 16)

les ballets C de la B / Alain Platel

In Only The Clouds Unchanged Philipp Blom gives a penetrating description of the turbulent years with which the 20th century began. Not only does he reveal parallels with our current juncture, he also demonstrates how the music of Mahler and art in general gave expression to the strong emotions of that time. For his latest creation Alain Platel surrounds himself with several artist companions. The musical lead is taken up by Steven Prengels, with whom Platel collaborated for the performances Gardenia, C(H)OEURS, tauberbach and En avant, marche! Musically they have been inspired by songs and fragments from Gustav Mahler’s oeuvre, but equally so by the polyphonic traditions of the Congolese singers Boule Mpanya and Russell Tshiebua, who Platel met through the work Coup Fatal. For the décor Platel has collaborated for the first time with Berlinde De Bruyckere.
