We 20:00


Collective Lovemusic

Nightmares have always fascinated mankind. They are fragments and anecdotes from our waking lives that are transformed and distorted by our own brains to reveal our deepest fears of the monsters in our lives. These monsters take many forms and permeate every aspect of our existence, be it society, politics or even art. In «Nightmare», Lovemusic explores a series of nightmares in a classic horror film three-act structure, ranging from online bullying to the agonies of being an artist to the horror of the current political situation in Ukraine.

The programme opens with a solo viola piece by Ted Hearne inspired by American folk music. This seemingly has nothing to do with the rest of the programme, but all good horror films begin by giving us a false sense of security! But then we realise that all is not as it seems, and we move through a series of nightmare situations: Nightmares in waking life, the monsters that haunt us in our sleep, and finally the realisation that reality is a nightmare.
