van beethovens hand Mechelen

What if you can't hear? Van Beethoven's 5th symphony is world famous. But what if your audience can only feel the music. Marijs Boulogne translates the music into a story with sign language and an expressive performance. A big hand comes to life on Beethoven's music. An exciting encounter between sound and silence, image and expression, the 5th symphony for everyone with or without hearing.
The Mechels Kamerorkest plays the 5th symphony integrally in an energetic and expressive way.

Choreography and concept: Marijs Boulogne
Orchestra: Mechels Kamerorkest
Music: 5th Symphony - Ludwig Van Beethoven
Musical direction: Tom Deneckere
Cultuurcentrum Mechelen in collaboration with Mechelen Chamber Orchestra & friends of the Conservatory
