Choregie - New Music Theatre
“…AMAZINGLY…PURELY…AMUSINGLY…INVENTIVLY…DREAMLY…DEJA VU…” —Choregie festival introduces innovative programming which explores works of different genres in the field of new music theatre, breaks down boundaries between art disciplines, opens up thoughts, perception and experience. By “new music theatre” we mean performances, which demonstrate a new development in the art form of music theatre when it is not opera, operetta or musical. Festival is open to experimental productions that expand the frontiers of the genre, as long as they can be seen as music theatre.
Choregie festival is a space for meetings and the exchanging of experience among various Slovene and international artists which at the same time develops theoretical thought about what music theatre actually is. Choregie is noted for its innovative programming which explores works from the forefronts of contemporary and early music scene. Choregie creates performances that thrive at the intersection of music and movement, sound and light, image and object, in an effort to discover and weave together new modes of perception.
Choregie opens up new spaces of expression and brings freshness, persuasiveness, intensity of experience and communication into the world of music. Choregie is an artform that breaks down boundaries between disciplines, opens up thoughts, perception and experience. Choregie performance is not a mixture of different art forms. Choregie is a form unto itself. Choregie is an artform which seeks to reestablish the unity existing in music and theatre.
