|About||Dynamic and multi-voiced company of singers, actors, musicians and other artists. We create, stimulate and present contemporary music theatre.|
"My great passion in life is the unknown. A new world is revealed in every book, every music score, every social issue, every encounter. I wish to be rendered speechless and stop for an eye-to-eye and ear-to-ear encounter, to be prepared for an in-depth discussion, in which we talk about what inspires us, what preoccupies us, in the most personal way possible.
I want to be able to travel and see things with my own eyes, with my ears pricked up. I want to discover, experience, be inspired and be moved. I have no interest in the gold of Columbus or of Da Gama. Instead, it is the inexhaustible wealth of our imagination that fascinates me. I want to hear stories and learn, again and again, always learn.
I never travel alone. My mates on this voyage are fishermen, whose weather-beaten faces have been marked by the elements, each quite different. Young explorers who cannot wait to discover new horizons. And a few stowaways in search of a better life.
And once we have satisfied our curiosity and the ship is teeming with new stories and new songs we shall return home, where you await us. And we shall sing, each with our own voice, and lay our beachcombing finds and other treasures at your feet.
And who knows, you too may suddenly experience the desire to travel with us. For part of the voyage, because we never stay on land for too long. The sea beckons us like a siren. And so we raise the anchor again, and navigate expectantly, unwaveringly and fearlessly into the great unknown."
