Les Pendus / The Hanged

428 views (on this website)

The hanged men are the unbelievers who obviously refuse to ask questions out loud. They cannot resign themselves to what is already known or what is written. They invest in their research to quench their own thirst for knowledge. No one recognizes their efforts. Often, they have to pay with their lives for their curiosity. The musicians of the Royal Chamber Orchestra of Wallonia brought to the stage a composition by Jan Kuijken. A musical story where tensions arise from the interaction between the orchestra, actors, singers, and voice and sound recordings. Two actors and three singers are suspended above the musicians. Josse De Pauw wrote for them a recited part and a sung part. This show pays homage to all these thoughtful visionaries who, because of their convictions, have been hanged, martyred, burned or locked up and tries to bring the answers to the question: “Will I be hanged if I think? ”
