Fusing music, dance, theatre and opera, En avant, marche! celebrates the marching band community surrounding a dying, yet larger-than-life, trombonist as he comes to terms with his lot – and his demotion to cymbal player. A metaphor for society as a whole, the piece explores how musical arrangements and life are preserved through trial and error.
For this heart-warming and exuberant new production, four performers and seven musicians are joined on stage by London-based concert band, The Heroes Band, playing music by Gustav Holst, Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Strauss.
This highly theatrical, genre-defying show is presented by les ballets C de la B director Alain Platel alongside Frank Van Laecke and Steven Prengels – the trio behind the 2012 Olivier Award nominated Gardenia.
