Musica Fugit

creation 2017

When Classical Music meets immersive theatre

“Musica Fugit” is an adaptation of Kamchatka Company’s third production: “FUGIT”. The Kamchàtka actors are joined by an orchestra of musicians who blend in un-noticed into the group and together with whom they all portray the same ‘timeless immigrants’.
The performance immerses the audience in a world with numerous paths and seemingly infinite locations, characters which come and go, boundless instruments whose chords refuse to cease being played, poetic, sad, hopeful and painful images and scenes… a hoard of sensations which enter your guts and move you beyond words.
An intense production which transforms public space into a stage and which unites music and theatre in a rare and unique way.

Kamchàtka prefers to perform with the Cologne Zamus musical ensemble, in view of the musicians familiarity and understanding of the show’s repertoire and dynamics, but can also perform with your favorite musical ensemble.
The music can be further adapted, in collaboration with the selected ensemble.

Kamchàtka is an artist collective of diverse nationalities and disciplines who’s members first met in Barcelona in 2006. Driven by the same interests and concerns and under the artistic direction of Adrian Schvarzstein, they started training intensely in group improvisation on the streets of Barcelona and researched the subject of immigration. Barcelona… an ideal city for confronting a society laden with contradictions and immersed in profound problems of integration.

Since 2007, they have created their own poetic language around a trilogy on human migration - Kamchàtka (2007), Habitaculum (2010) and Fugit (2014) and have been performing in more than 30 different countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Their latest creation Alter (2021) is a site specific performance which is intimately linked to the landscape and to interaction with the audience.
In 2023 and 2024 Kamchàtka is working on two special site specific projects which take place in the South of France.
The company also offers the Migrar workshop, a unique human experience around the Kamchàtka performance, for the inhabitants of your city, as well as an indoor production with a Symphony Orchestra of your choice - Music for wild beasts - an approach to classical music for all audiences.
