For the past ten years, Ictus has been exploring the concert space and form in its famous ‘liquid rooms’. For this 2019 opening, the Belgian ensemble pushes the envelope a bit farther, inviting spectators into a festival within the festival: a vast evening – more than three hours of music – in which the aesthetic experience merges with moments of dialogue and interaction. A long evening, with more than three hours of music, where esthetic experience merges with togetherness.

«

Ictus mène depuis une dizaine d’années une réflexion originale sur la forme et sur l’espace du concert dans ses fameuses « liquid rooms ». Pour cette ouverture 2019, l’ensemble belge pousse le curseur un peu plus loin en proposant de vivre l’expérience d’un festival dans le festival. Une vaste soirée, plus de trois heures de musique, où l’expérience esthétique fusionne avec le temps de l’échange et de la rencontre. C’est aussi le moment de renouer avec un pan de l’histoire de Musica, dans la grande lignée des concerts décontextualisés dans des lieux insolites, en ouvrant les portes d’anciens ateliers portuaires au sein d’un quartier en devenir.
