• Toru Nagahama/Tomoko Mukaiyama

Exhibition Grand Theatre

Two successive exhibitions, with work that is also a part of two performances that the Grand Theatre is presenting in connection with Noorderlicht.

11 through 25 September

Toru Nagahama - I am like this as you are like this. I can act like that then you will be like that?

The photographer and graphic designer Toru Nagahama investigates how to use photography to create three-dimensional experiences. With the space of the Grand Theatre as his inspiration he made his selection and presentation of objects and moving photographs. Nagahama starts from the banality of everyday life and in a playful manner seeks interaction. His work is also a part of the installation-performance SHOES’.

Tomoko Mukaiyama - Sonic Tapestry V: SHOES'

The most rhythmic objects in the fashion world are women's heels. In the theatrical installation/performance SHOES' the artist and pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama combines four centuries of the piano repertoire with unlikely shoes by Prada, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik and others. The pumps are the dramatic counterpoint to the music: they dance, weep, make love and die.

“The performance SHOES’ is full of fire, light, music, burlesque and even silence” – NRC Handelsblad

Saturday, 17 September 8:30 p.m.
Admission: €15,- / €12,50 (discount) / €10,- (Grand Pas)

26 September through 9 October

Edward Burtynsky

The Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky is world-famous for his photographs of industrial landscapes and nature as it has been transformed by industry. His work is included in the collections of important museums worldwide.

Ensemble Hexnut - WRENCH - A choreography of music and photography

Eight contemporary composers have sought inspiration in themes from Burtynsky's oeuvre. In WRENCH, a new project by the ensemble Hexnut, sound and images together tell the story.

“Completely bizarre, and just as fantastic. Hexnut can play anything, and does just that, and they have a sense of humour too.” - Hans van Lissum, www.kindamusik.net
