The second concert in Sa Taronja's "Serenata Berlin" series, a string quintet, will take place on Friday, May 4th, with a programme of Beethoven, Hayd and Mozart. As usual in these chamber music concerts, different musicians from the DSO take part, often inviting their friends from other orchestras. The group coming in May play together under the name Camerata Variabile Basel. One of them, the viola player Raphael Sachs, has already delighted audiences at Sa Taronja, where he played twice last year.

After the brilliant concert on Saturday 21st April at Sa Taronja where the audience was thrilled by the exceptional playing of the young string trio, - - especially by virtuoso Wei Lu, Concert master and first violinist of the DSO - it is recommended to reserve seats for the next performance.

Stage Training - Super-Intensive Seminar
Using Imagination and Sensitivity as the vehicle.

“The Performer, with a capital letter, is a man of action. He is not somebody who plays another. He is a doer, a priest, a warrior. He is outside aesthetic genres. Ritual is peformance, a completed action, an act. Degenerated ritual is spectacle. I am not trying to discover something new, but something forgotten. Something so old that the distinctions between aesthetic genres are no longer valid. .”
Jerzy Grotowski

General considerations:

For the actor (performer) we propose simple and very concrete exercises which invite him to confront his difficulties and areas of aridity.
The activity is planned as a Training for professionals of the stage - singers, dancers, actors, acrobats - and for any who need to express to others their state of being.
The work is carried out on the instrument of the Performer himself. The Performer performs and is performed. He is the player and the instrument at one and the same time. This provides a layer of enormous and complex richness.
