Exit F Michael Maierhof
19:00, by Mark De Laere (NL, Terarken) and Claire Jesuran (FR, Salon Royal)
A composition for ensemble performance and… four hot-air balloons. Written by Michael Maierhof, EXIT F is nothing if not spectacular. The intriguing, rhythmic, light-hearted, loud, flashy and eccentric work is tailor-made for Nadar, a young ensemble with a burning enthusiasm for contemporary music. Generation Kill has also been especially composed for Nadar by the Belgian composer Stefan Prins, who drew his inspiration from the eponymous HBO miniseries about the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
