Club Guy & Roni / Slagwerk Den Haag: Mechanical Ecstasy - i.s.m. Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie

Club Guy & Roni / Slagwerk Den Haag: Mechanical Ecstasy - i.s.m. Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie
Feeling of freedom to enticing drums

In a mix of enticing drums and illusions both the performers and the audience experience a timeless feeling of freedom. Or at least for as long as the performance lasts. Club Guy & Roni and Slagwerk Den Haag build a Clubnight, in which party and show are continuously mixed. On beats as a mantra, on the way to ecstasy. For centuries man has been building musical machines that make himself obsolete. Leonardo da Vince already made sketches for an automated drum machine. The invention of the drum computer has crucially changed music and our culture. These wondrous machines form the starting point of this performance.

Coproduction| We present this show together with Stadsschouwburg de Harmonie.
