What happens when tiny particles (protons) are thrown into a tornado (vortex)? What becomes apparent when one analyses the smallest parts of such a force? Is there a PROTEX, or perhaps a VORTON? Light will be thrown on this question and more in the joint project by ensemble proton bern and Ensemble Vortex Geneva.

Reaching out across the ‘Röschtigrabe’, the ensembles bring their peculiarities and specialities to this large-scale co-production.

Interdisciplinarity: The connections between acoustic instrumental sound and electronics, the gradual emulsion and separation of these worlds are of great interest to both ensembles. For this project, the ensembles have commissioned three new works von Michel Roth, Fernando Garnero and Arturo Corrales. Three world premieres to mark this momentous occasion!
