Concert | Nowhere: Pianist Performs 12 Hours a Day for 14 Consecutive Days


For fourteen consecutive days, twelve hours a day, pianist Marino Formenti will perform at the venue -- where he will also live in a space that is mercilessly both public and private. We invite you to come and go freely, to listen to music in a different dimension, with Formenti playing the piano daily, from morning to night. With round-the-clock live streaming, you can also experience and share his days at a distance. Nowhere is a non-place in the middle of the city. Marino Formenti performs, eats, sleeps, and lives all in the same space -- a metaphorical, silent, musical 'glass house' that is also surrounded and on view by the daily life of the city. In a performance about music, time, and togetherness, Formenti questions any and all divisions between performance and life. Days become music. Come and stay, leave and come back, listen or ignore the pianist, sleep, read, write, draw, lie down -- to experience music, time, and togetherness in another way. August 14-28, 2019

A poor but lovely dancer, Isabelle, arrives at the invitation of Hugo, a charming scoundrel and twin brother to Frederic, a young man hopelessly in love. Hugo believes that his brother loves the wrong woman - a manipulative millionairess - and intends to use Isabelle to break up the engagement The play’s vivid and numerous characters, along with the quick-paced wit and satire of upper-class pretension and lower-class ambition, lead to a fairy tale ending where nearly everything turns out for the best. A student production. Written by Jean Anouilh Directed by Jonathan Bolt Translated by Christopher Fry
