LimeWharf presents: The Wedding Party Massacre, Open Space Istanbul
In the fall of 2015, during his tour the artist and musician Fabian Chiquet, in collaboration with Ayse Deniz Gökçin, will realise a musical and performative installation addressing the helplessness of the individual facing global armed clashes.
“The Wedding Party Massacre” will take the form of a driving physical performance that invites the audience to get lost in an energy-charged audio- visual world, within a journey through our contemporary fears.
This performance will consist of both Chiquet’s and Gökçin’s re-interpretation of the original ballet to a libretto by Jean Cocteau, choreographed by Irene Lagut, costumes by Jean Hugo and music by five members of Les Six- Auric, Honegger, Milhaud, Poulenc, Tailleferre.
This project is the continuation of Chiquet’s last mise-en-scène entitled “Parade”, and refers, like the latter did, to an idea of Jean Cocteau. In his last piece “Parade” – an interpretation to the ballet from Cocteau/Picasso/ Satie (1917), Chiquet examined their situation in these times, how they were dealing with the presence of war in relation to how the media deals with it now.
The two-day event also will include a panel on Tuesday 6th of October including the artists and a specialist of Jean Cocteau, examining the unique performance in relation to the original ballet libretto.
For this particular performance, where Chiquet re-interpreted the original composition of “The Wedding Party Massacre” by rapping and re-composing, Gökçin has taken a classical approach on re-composing the re-interpreted piece on the piano.
NOTE: When selecting the RSVP section on the Eventbrite website you will be added to the event’s guestlist and expected to pay a £7 entrance fee at the door on either nights. If you wish to already secure a ticket you can already buy them on the same Eventbrite page.
