Chuuut (Trailer) But what happens after a percussion concert?
At night, instruments, objects, lights and strange characters take over the stage. Funny and poetic, always virtuosos, they decide to make the show.
But what does the guardian of the theater do? But where has the Quatuor Beat gone?
It’s a secret: chuuut…
Great musical works (Reich, Khatchaturian, Tchaikovsky, Bach and Vivaldi… ) and more unexpected works…
Chopsticks, drums, keyboards, hands, eyes, spotlights, funny characters playing music and dancing.
Quatuor Beat invites us into a supernatural world where instruments, objects and music come to life…
A show for all audiences
What is a concert: musicians, their virtuoso hands, a stage, props, composers, objects that sound, so many instruments from which both the melody and the show are born.
Behind a dreamlike tale that will also please children, this show is a pretext for the decomposition of the concert into all its ingredients and asks the question: can we see the music? In this show will appear and reveal the musical composition itself, its rhythm, its movements, the objects that are struck to make them resonate, the hands and even the costumes and accessories of the musicians.
A scholarly but playful and poetic dissection of what makes music, from composition to play.
And paradoxically, if the performers of the Quartet, extraordinary virtuosos, achieve here an exceptional performance of playing, they fade behind the music to give it all the place on the stage, to give it to see as never before.
Chuuut makes the musicians disappear to make the music appear or reappear, differently.
Seeing to hearbetter, this is the whole promise of this amazing show.
And there is no age to feel this emotion.
