Ensemble Modern invites you to become part of an evening of sound and play in ›Night Shift‹ by Cathy Milliken. Here dreams, visions, and love meet ecology and walls. The audience joins musicians of Ensemble Modern, conductor Jonathan Stockhammer, the Chor Frankfurt, and soloists Helena Rasker and Michael Schiefel. Together, the audience embark on a musical exploration of Milliken's score, inspired by texts from Shakespeare’s ›A Midsummer Night’s Dream‹. All audience members are provided with sound-making objects, and guided gently through an engaging, relaxed evening of collaborative listening and performance. The wall that separates Shakespeare’s ill-fated lovers proves to be a mere illusion, like the imaginary wall that separates public from performers. Join this boundary-breaking concert for an unforgettable night of musical adventure.
