As part of a Big Berio Weekend curated by Bozar, Joris Lacoste presents the very first staging of the 8-voice version of A-Ronne composed by Luciano Berio in 1974-1975. Conceived as a sort of radio documentary and based on a poem by Edoardo Sanguineti, this piece mixes extracts from a host of other texts: translations of the Bible, Dante’s Divine Comedy, Goethe’s Faust, the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, and even snippets of Roland Barthes.

Lacoste gives full rein to what Berio called a “theatre for the ears” in which the sentences, the words and the voices are the real characters of the piece. Each audience member will be provided with a wireless headset through which they will hear an electro-acoustic prologue composed by Sébastien Roux, followed by Berio’s piece performed by 8 singers from the Brussels-based ensemble HYOID.
