The Konsertsirkus returns to Borealis, throwing open the doors of the Bergen International Cultural Center to adventurous listeners, old and young, for an afternoon of experimental music adventures. Taking over the house, the Konsertsirkus will once again be a celebration with music, food and drink, and space in-between for the energetic ones to run around. Full of short concerts for whole families to take part in, there will be cutting edge new music with a playful theatricality performed on teapots and bells, balloons and sirens, by members of Ensemble Pamplemousse, and a piece from Danish composer Simon Løffler that challenges us to listen not with our ears but through our teeth. It’s not just the audience who are all ages either, as very young composers from the Vadmyra school will join composers Knut Vaage, Ole Andre Farstad and musicians from BIT20 Ensemble to perform new work from the BIT20 outreach program Vi komponerer. The Konsertsirkus Café will be open throughout the afternoon offering snacks and drinks, so whether you want to try the experimental ice-cream made by Hallaisen or just listen together to new, exciting sound-worlds, bring the whole family down to the Konsertsirkus!.
