Hanoi-Circo Pobre – a live performance by Passepartout Duo

May 19, 8 pm
️Manzi art space, 14 Phan Huy Ich Street
From the organizer:
Manzi & Passepartout Duo are pleased to present a special experimental music performance Circo Pobre

Circo Pobre is the latest project by Passepartout Duo – a contemporary music group from Italy established in 2015 by pianist Nicoletta Favari and percussionist Christopher Salvito. It was during the tour through South America that the Duo were introduced to the Chilean expression “circo pobre”, a phrase that refers to a situation in which you might need to fill the shoes of presenter, tamer, and trapeze artist all at once in order to finish the show. The phrase immediately spoke to the Duo’s independent spirit: from making their own instruments to presenting the music itself, taking a self-reliant path has guided many of their artistic decisions.

This live performance at Manzi is the 5th show of the Duo’s Vietnam Tour this year. The centerpiece is the “Chromaplane”, a new electronic instrument the Duo has created over the past year. With a pickup coil in each hand, the performers trace shapes above the instrument’s flat surface to unveil its hidden landscape of oscillators buzzing in the electromagnetic field. The four parts are defined by taking both a temporal and spatial approach to the sound and create the arch of a listening journey.

* Surcharge: 100,000 vnđ/each (incl. one drink)
