Tickets for The Havels & Holland Andrews Berlin
We are very happy to connect with old and new friends for a special concert night. On December 11th, The Havels, part of PEOPLE 2018, and Holland Andrews, who will be with us for a residency program during their work at Nils Frahm's studio, will strike a chord in our lobby and present music from their repertoire.
Czech artists Irena Havlová and Vojtěch Havel have started to work together in the mid-80s, at the experimental Capella Antiqua e Moderna ensemble which won both public and critical acclaim. The Havels, a husband-and-wife duo, developed an unorthodox approach to both historical and modern compositional techniques and interpretive procedures. They collaborated with many other leading Czech and foreign artists creating their typically unclassifiable, multi-style, and multi-media sound and image collages. They have been appearing in concerts across Europe, India, Canada, and the USA. Their music is highly poetic, and penetrates the innermost corners of a perceptive human soul, enriching it at the same time.
Holland Andrews is a vocalist, composer, and performance artist whose work is based on emotionality in its many forms. Andrews focuses on the abstraction of operatic and extended-technique voice to build soundscapes encompassing both catharsis and dissonance. Frequently highlighting themes surrounding vulnerability and healing, Andrews arranges music for voice, clarinet, and electronics. Andrews also develops and performs soundscapes for dance, theater, and film, and their work is toured internationally with artists such as Bill T. Jones, Dorothee Munyaneza, Will Rawls, and poet Demian Dinéyazhi. Notable musical collaborations include William Brittelle, Son Lux, Christina Vantzou, Peter Broderick, and Methods Body.
