Warning: this show is cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus. 

For this adaptation of Moby Dick, Gorges Ocloo called on Ben Okri, who adapted the novel into a magic-realist story about the gulf between high and low, rich and poor. Josse De Pauw and the soprano Nobulumko Mngxekeza-Nziramasanga take to the stage to perform an energized and jazzy opera about the need for rapprochement in an increasingly polarized society.

Looking for insights about love, Maatschappij Discordia decided to consult Elfriede Jelinek. While last season, Marguerite Duras accompanied them in a lifelong attempt to articulate the first experience of love, with Jelinek, Discordia has immediately encountered provocation. What is the image that this author – a virtuoso at unmasking clichés – sketches of love… and the female experience of love?

In the first part of Suite n° 4, recognizable and anonymous voices overlap as though they were coming from different acoustic spaces. In the second part, the voices are accompanied by eight musicians from Ictus. The Encyclopédie de la parole collective presents a performance about absence, like an opera without singers or a theatre without actors. For 150 minutes, you hear a thousand concrete situations in more than 30 languages.
