Poetry concert with Jean Cocteau
The Brussels TetraCelli Cello Quartet are offering you the chance to join them on a journey through the work of Jean Cocteau. At the intersection of all arts and influences, this iconic artist gave expression to his ideas through writing (poetry, novels, theatre), painting, sculpture, dance and cinema. These different facets gave him the opportunity to work alongside many of the major artists of his time: Picasso, Satie, Poulenc, Jean Marais, Édith Piaf and many others. To discover, appreciate and enjoy the work of this all-encompassing artist through a concert illustrated via the projection of images, Bibliotheca Wittockiana, where books have become works of art, is organising an exhibition of Picasso posters which will enable the audience to explore the work of a master who encouraged Jean Cocteau in his drawing. Music, which Jean Cocteau loved, will become the central theme of his work: the concert becomes a poem, with the pieces performed (Satie, Stravinsky, Milhaud, Doucet and Poulenc) transforming into collections, the movements into chapters and the notes into words…
In cooperation with KaBelA and Bibiliotheca Wittockiana.
Sat. & Sun. at 11h00 and 13h30 (duration: 50 min.)
