Support: ANNELIES MONSERÉ
has been playing music solo since 2000. Initially the music was piano-based and mostly instrumental. Once she ‘discovered’ her voice, vocals became a main focus. The early songs had very simple structures and melodies, and the words were sparse and introvert. Musically, she experimented with different instruments such as cello, guitar, xylophone and melodica.
Dj: Ann Mathé (Risiko Press)
Spelers Annelore Crollet en Femke Stallaert beginnen het jaar 2019 met een wandeling doorheen het metaforische huis van de Duitse filmregisseur/enfant terrible Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Ze werken vanuit een fascinatie voor zijn films, teksten, maatschappelijke thema's, melodramatische personages en zijn korte maar zeer intense leven. Al spelende ontdekken ze wat dat materiaal vandaag nog kan betekenen. Ze willen los van elke productiedwang kunnen werken, maar op deze avond zetten ze de deur van hun studio op een kier. Aldaar tonen ze het resultaat van 3 weken werken in Het Bos.
"I hope to build a house with my films. Some of them are the cellar, some are the walls, and some are the windows.
But I hope in time there will be a house." Rainer Werner Fassbinder
