Time capsule Turangalîla

Seven duos of grandparent and grandchild (aged between 8 and 14) with diverse roots try to capture life in music, just like Olivier Messiaen in his Turangalîla symphony. Do you and your grandchild have some musical baggage? Do you play an instrument or can you sing properly? Then work with Time Capsule Turangalîla during an introductory session, three workshop days, one rehearsal and one presentation?

Inspirer and facilitator of the track is Osama Abdulrassol, with support from Hilde De Clercq.

    Young and old will be jointly responsible for the framing of a concert in Concertgebouw Brugge. Within an intergenerational curation project, both groups creatively engage with the format of the classical concert, exploring what binds them together. Both production and artistic elements are covered.
