DetailsAlain Platel, the trailblazing Founder and Director of the Belgian contemporary dance collective les ballets C de la B, presents this new musical theatre work in collaboration with Frank Van Laecke, with music composed by Steven Prengels. For this new production, Van Laecke and Platel approach the world of marching bands as a ?miniature society' in its own right, a collective of very different individuals who try to keep one another going in the same direction. By creating a metaphor for society as a whole, Platel explores how musical arrangements are preserved through trial and error. Four actors and seven musicians are joined on stage by a local brass or marching band, playing music by Gustav Holst, Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Strauss.
