ARNO FABRE AND HIS STRANGE MACHINES
Arno Fabre described his new show as “a ballet for plastic animals, remotely controlled excavators, exterminating robots and shadows”. The work’s title, Bibilolo, is childish and the ballet’s music plays with sounds (babbling, pygmy music, Irish songs, Yamaha DXY synthesizer). Juggling in a spirit of pure pleasure, the three pianists play live on six electronic keyboards.
