BEYOND THE STAGE WITH IGUDESMAN & JOO: AND NOW MOZART

Igudesman and Joo

If Trey Parker and Matt Stone played the violin and piano, if Penn and Teller performed music instead of magic, and if Seth Macfarlane had a twin, they would be the brilliantly outrageous Igudesman & Joo. Violinist Aleksey Igudesman and pianist Hyung-Ki Joo are the inventive comic duo whose hilarious mix of music, pop culture and pure zaniness has won them fans of all ages and cultures worldwide. As evidence, their YouTube sketches have attracted close to 40 million viewers.

The New York Times said of their artistry, “Their blend of classical music and comedy, laced with pop culture references and a wholly novel take on the word slapstick, is fueled by genuine, dazzling virtuosity.”

BEYOND THE STAGE WITH L’IMMEDIAT

l'immediat

In sixty minutes of beautifully orchestrated circus-theatre chaos, seven young acrobat-adventurers defy a tsunami of unstable forces with optimism, dark humor and breathtaking physical skills. L’Immédiat is a tumultuous visual commentary on the uncertainty and mayhem of modern times. Created by the award-winning Camille Boitel, a founding figure from James Thierrée’s Junebug Symphony Company, L’Immédiat was awarded the Prix Mimos in 2010.
