Bidding farewell to the tails and routine of the symphonic world, the bassoonist, now a sound-gleaning pirate, steers his cutter and sails from island to island in search of amazing sounds and offbeat music.
During this new adventure, the territory is inhabited by musicians who, at first glance, resemble the penguin that he once was. Mordicus, afraid but intrigued, still decides to go ashore.
His apprehensions are quickly dissipated, for this symphonic orchestra has a thirst for sharing and innovation. But how do you communicate when words have no effect?
Sounds and gestures now have room to display all their nuances and subtleties.
This show is a very unusual form of orchestral theatre. The musicians are invited to make both their instruments and their bodies resonate in an astonishing fashion, and to fully take on the roles of characters in the story. The traditional relationships between orchestra, conductor and soloist are overturned. The black and white costumes take on a new and exciting aspect. The orchestra moves, the orchestra sparkles, the orchestra breathes.
