Luis Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou
1920s Surrealist Shorts with Live Score
Wednesday 14 February 8.00pm
Rita Castro Blanco, Tjeerd Barkmeijer conductors
Caroline Bordignon, Dennis Tjiok, Philippos Rousiamanis, Aaron Breeze composers
As we continue to research interesting programming ideas for our French Connections season, we thought why not curate our own original evening of 1920s Surrealist short films complete with brand new live scores composed and performed by our students?
Our programme will include Luis Buñuel’s Un chien andalou (co-written by Salvador Dalí), Man Ray’s Emak-Bakia, René Clair’s Entr’acte and Hans Richter’s Vormittagsspuk (‘Ghosts Before Breakfast’). Some of the shorts featured may not be that well-known but were extremely innovative for the time they were made and will be a very interesting watch.
This is your only opportunity to catch this show as the project will not be performed anywhere else…
NB Suitable for persons aged 15 or older. Contains moderate surreal horror and sex.
