Dance

Baal

Date: Thursday, Apr 25 2019
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Bristol Old Vic

Bristol’s Impermanence present Bertolt Brecht’s first play, written in 1918 upon his return from war.

“We move between town and forest, life and death, disgust and empathy.

“Searching for freedom in expression and extremity of experience with disdain for mediocrity, BAAL is our anti-hero and the world is there to be consumed – but at what cost?”

Set to a soundtrack by Robert Bentall of original Nyckelharpa compositions (a traditional Swedish folk instrument), a sampled recording of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto from 1943 in Berlin, and a few borrowed pieces of music, Bristol-based Impermanence present the first-ever dance adaptation of Baal, with costumes by the inimitable Pam Tait.

Apr 25, 7.30pm, £12.
