'Instrumental Theatre' The Mauricio Kagel Workshop
We held public workshops as part of our work-in-development, The Mauricio Kagel Project. This project, part of the 2015 Christchurch Arts Festival, saw Free Theatre collaborating with composer Gao Ping, conductor Hamish McKeich, and local jazz and classical musicians to investigate the musical and performative provocations of the late Argentine-German composer, Mauricio Kagel. Kagel conceived an “Instrumental Theatre” that challenged the boundaries between music and theatre, comedy and seriousness, the avant-garde and the popular, by exploring the theatricality of musical instruments and the musicality of everyday objects. In the workshop, we experimented with sounds, textures and movement, and created and built fantastical musical instruments out of a range of everyday materials. http://www.freetheatre.org.nz/blog1
