“Landscape” is a performance which associates English music with poetry. In the course of a single concert, the performers create empty spaces, inviting reverie, thoughts of foreign travel, and the experience of the richness of our surroundings, where sensitivity and the awareness of our presence in the world is laid out before us.
We are encouraged to reconnect, like a shaman, with the intelligence of nature.
“Landscape” performs both a poetic and a political act, by reifying the poem, which is the “ guardian of the integrity of speech” (from “Que pense le poème” A.Badiou), so countering the language of commercialisation, technicity and communications.
Subscribing to Kenneth White’s concept of Geopoetics, “Landscape” is seeking an ecology of the mind as one possible escape, amongst others, from complete destruction.
