In MURAKAMI, Ikarai takes the audience on a journey into the mind of author Haruki Murakami. Together with vocalist Sanne Rambags (winner of Edison 2019) and visual artist V&J, the Ikarai ensemble presents a new take on Murakami’s mythical story Kafka on the Shore.
Fish raining from the sky, talking cats, philosophising prostitutes, timeless places and thoughts that become reality. Based on texts by librettist Frank Siera, Ikarai plays music that captures the magic of Murakami in a filmic combination of classical music and jazz.
Improvisation, composition and storytelling blend together to create a new concert experience: the world of an author, translated into music.
For this performance, Sanne Rambags makes way for Sanne Huijbregts.
