Music Current 2023 - Natacha Diels Somewhere Beautiful (solo) concert
Dublin Sound Lab’s Music Current festival returns with a visually stunning and technically outstanding four-day festival programme showcasing some of the most fearless innovators in contemporary music. The festival will host four new concerts, a chamber opera, workshops and discussions that explore the cutting edge of new music, as it takes over Project Arts Centre from April 12 – 15.
Music Current platforms some of the most adventurous musical and visual artists including celebrated Irish artist Jaki Irvine whose new work, Re_sett_ing_s, for ensemble and VJ, will be a major draw to this year’s event. This year the festival welcomes the innovative international new music artists and ensembles Nadar Ensemble, Schallfeld Ensemble, and Natacha Diels – all of whom are performing Ireland for the first time.
Natacha Diels presents Somewhere Beautiful, her one-person show, and her very first performance in Ireland (on Thursday 13 April), staging her unique vision of musical performance as multimedia theatre. The performance is like a journey into a strange landscape occupied by sounds and images that are at once both familiar and strange, reassuring and unsettling. Diels' work combines choreographed movement, video animation, instrumental practice, and cynical play to create worlds of curiosity and unease.
