At the age of two she was in the strict Japanese school, now she is fighting for freedom in the opening performance for music theatre at Sort/Hvid.
Thursday October 7th we will open as stage for music theatre with a performance concert called DIES IRAE.
We have brough the world-famous Japanese pianist Eriko Makimura to Denmark so you can experience her in a concert staged by the experimenting and expressive set designers Christian Albrechtsen and Julian Toldam Juhlin.
Makimura was raised with force and strict discipline in the Japanese music school. As a grown up she has tried to break free, she has challenged the classical Japanese school with her performance art. Today she is known for the rebellion against the traditional concert tradition in favor of course, intuitive, and strong visual performances. She has performed in world known concert halls, gay bars, and rundown factories. In DIES IRAE she fights for the freedom she has spent her life insisting on. Makimura plays her way through her own compositions and famous classical pieces from Bach to Tchaikovsky. Will she end up receiving eternal salvation or absolute curse?
DIES IRAE is a part of the opening program for Sort/Hvid Stage for Music Theatre
From 2021 Sort/Hvid is a stage for music theatre. We start off with a big opening program. Two months filled with pieces mixing music and theatre. See the whole program here.
Here you can listen to music that has inspired the pianist Eriko Makimura in her work with DIES IRAE. The music is not directly part of DIES IRAE but related to the theme of DIES IRAE.
