Het wonderlijke verhaal van K – The curious story of K

Commissioned by the Dutch Wind Ensemble (NBE) composer en percussionist Bart de Vrees wrote the composition ‘Het wonderlijke verhaal van K’ (The curious story of K)

Bart de Vrees en Pé Okx worked together in several succesfull projects: ‘GlasslaG I’ on Oerol Festival and ‘Waterworks’ for the chamber choir ‘Good Company’ in Alkmaar. At the request of Bart, Pé designed the staging and some sound objects.

The stage was designed with handcrafted wooden boxes and old record players as well as glass plates with projections, and even an amplified coffee machine played a roll. The peculiar and poetic objects are sometimes used by the musicians as an instrument.
Dutch writer Ilja Leonard Pfeiffer wrote the lyrics. Actor Ids van der Krieke transforms in the character of a clogged quizmaster.
