Le Carnaval des Animaux and Danse Macabre

11 November 2017

An evening of interdisciplinary sound, art and performance. The works have been made in response to Le Carnaval des Animaux and Danse Macabre, two pieces of music written by the French composer Camille Saint-Sans. Paintings, sound pieces, films, sculptures and performances will navigate the fourteen movements of the light-hearted suites of the carnival and culminate with the symphonic poem of the dance of death.
