On Wednesday, May 10, experience the pre-premiere of The Folly in theater hall Natlab. What to expect. A character building that comes to life with the help of guitarists and music. Get carried away, because which guitarist is real and which is a life-size projection?TICKETS
The Folly Is a performance by Izhar Elias, Paul de Nooijer and Menno de Nooijer. Izhar plays the ancient chords of the Folia and other music on his guitar. Paul & Menno provide a surprising spectacle through projections.
We see a temple, or rather a small temple. Well, is it actually a temple? The structure we see, also called a folly, was built purely for decoration in 19th-century gardens. Thus, as a hiker, you were fooled, so to speak (folly means fool).
Paul and Menno de Nooijer are worldwide known for their stop-motion art. With their images and projections they manipulate the visible world, take everyday reality out of its context and present it in a totally different shape or perspective.
Izhar Elias is one of the most sought-after specialists in early music, chamber music and new music for guitar. He has given concerts, lectures and masterclasses, and been the soloist in concertos with renowned orchestras, in Europe, Russia, south-east Asia, Australia and the US. Izhar has won the prestigious Dutch Music Prize, the highest musical award given by the Dutch government. Together with Paul and Menno de Nooijer he made numerous special live performances.
