In Ancient Greece, a symposium was a male gathering to party and drink wine together, holding lively discussions on art and society that gave rise to new ideas. Wine, the gift of the gods to humanity, could open the doors to the divine, to divinity and truth, when savoured in the right way.
After having successfully visited various European concert halls with its symposium Klangforum Wien now invites you to partake in a culinary and musical experience at BOZAR. The excellent Viennese ensemble will perform contemporary music while you will be comfortably seated on cushions, futons and chairs in the stalls of the Henry Le Bœuf Great Hall. In between performances you can walk to the Horta Hall for delicious food and wine. An evening programme that is a real treat for your taste buds and your ears: a gradual abandon to drunkenness and the subtle interaction between the Apollinian and Dionysian worlds over an eight-hour period.
To date, no participant has walked out before the end! Spread the word!
