BOLSTER[bubbles] symbolises a search for the essence of a solo performance within contemporary classical music, and what it means to break out of the bubble of a genre in order to make it more widely accessible. In this Klankenbos residency, percussionist Wim Pelgrims continues his twofold quest: on the one hand, one of personal evolution as a post-instrumentalist. On the other hand, he explores different ways of interaction between performer and audience, and working across borders.

BOLSTER deals with the application of promo techniques as part of the art experience. The focus is on the extent to which our pop culture influences aesthetic choices.

[Bubbles] stands for the experience in the moment itself: immersing the audience in a personal abstract aesthetic world. Actively influencing the space through scenographic interventions, and crossing the boundary between performer and character, are key to this immersion.

In collaboration with C-TAKT.
