2015 BIFEM proudly presents the Australian debut performances by the young Parisian ensemble, soundinitiative, featuring its co-artistic directors Joshua Hyde, Fabienne Séveillac and Gwenaëlle Rouger.
The world premiere of a new long-form work by Austrian composer Bernhard Lang has been co-commissioned by BIFEM, soundinitiative and the Yon Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, Singapore. The Exhausted (L’épuisé) takes its title from Gilles Deleuze’s famous treatise on Samuel Beckett. Part-concert, part-music theatre, The Exhausted meditates on Deleuze’s inquiry into the nature of production and the intrinsic link between decomposition, composition and the essence of individualism. This is the first of two appearances by soundinitiative at 2015 BIFEM.
