Music theatre by and about strong women
What do shedding insects, the music of Hildegard van Bingen, prehistoric miniature sculptures and make-up tutorials from the fifties have to do with each other? Seemingly nothing, but they got crackling in the imagination of soprano and musical theatre maker Lieselot De Wilde. In her first solo creation Figurine, she explores the (self)image of women in the arts and beyond. She forges rusty expectations and old clichés into a kaleidoscopic reflection on creation, transformation and humanity.
In dialogue with a sculpture by scenographer Mirella Weingarten and in a musical language as colourful as it is unique, De Wilde plays a game of moving and being moved. How do you shape yourself and your world? How do you break free from templates and patterns? And what range of forms take their place? Figurine is the artistic self-portrait of a budding creator, and an ode to freedom and multiplicity.
In 2022 Lieselot De Wilde won the Ultima Award in the 'Music' category.
The hero as bottle, a stringent reevaluation. I now propose the bottle as hero.
