b-classic charms!

Friday, april 20 - 20.15

Labiomista

Marcel Habetslaan 50

3600 Genk 

B-Classic has a reputation for finding unique locations, and that’s what we’ll prove once more this Friday. We meet at Labiomista, the extraordinary studio of Koen Vanmechelen, B-Classic’s godfather. Vanmechelen offers us his studio and works of art for the performance of the equally exceptional music by Dick van der Harst.  

 

The studio serves as the stage, the audience takes place on the balustrades while Dick van der Harst and several other musicians play his work of which they only know the basis. It will be an adventure, even for them, which is somewhat inevitable in this special location.

 

Koen Vanmechelen’s works of art are literally all around, even in the performance itself. Singers Lieselot De Wilde (pictured on the right) and Ekaterina Levental (picture​d on the left) wear coats designed by the host himself and composer van der Harst is inspired by the wonderful mutations he sees. Even the piece itself is a mutation: a new musical lifeform created on the spot with eclectic musicians and styles. Jazz, eastern music, classical music, Marockin’ Brass and an overdose of marvel.

 

Come, come, whoever you are, but be quick: the number of places is limited.
