L’OUTRE-RÊVE by ECM+ webcast available until Oct 9th

Ensemble contemporain de Montréal: L’OUTRE-RÊVE

A large-scale multidisciplinary show combining orchestral and electroacoustic creations, dance and vocal art, visual arts and poetry, L’Outre-rêve borrows the voice and form of the initiatory narrative written by poet and composer Symon Henry—recently a finalist for a Governor General’s Literary Award—and explores the relationship between memories, bodies and identities, beyond borders. 

In a mesmerizing and unrestrained voice, these themes are conveyed by four archetype characters inspired by Henry’s origins steeped in a cultural heritage blending East and West. The Vieux ClownLouve que j’aimeDjinn l’éphémère and Nour d’Outre-rêve call out to each other over the projected sounding pictures, in turn, present the four new works for ensemble commissioned for the occasion to composers Symon Henry, Annesley Black, Myriam Boucher and Snežana Nešić. 

On stage, the ECM+, its conductor, soprano Sarah Albu and three soloists in perpetual mutation transport the audience into a dreamlike world that ignores borders and give life to myriad creations that are as enigmatic as they are unpredictable.
