“These sounds… some of them… I had to laugh, but it also did something to me. I really got this urge to fly!”

Midas Dekkers in reaction to the Insects Concert

“I have been listening full of of fascination to the Genetic Choir pieces. You appear to me as a vocal machine that is constantly searching, evaluating, probing, seducing, without any fear.”

LARGO / Boslab


10-15 July 2015 in het Amsterdamse Bostheater / Boslab
LARGO is a visual & musical performance in which time itself is changing pace. We see a group of people approaching. They are coming from the countryside. Slowly, they are coming closer. In what first seemed unity, you start seeing differences. You start zooming in to the smallest detail. LARGO is showing the world in a slower tempo.

Genetic Choir is creating the music and the singers are part of the durational physical performance of this piece by Judith Hazeleger.
