MATA-HARI /Claire Chevallier/Claron Mac Fadden/Josse de Pauw

NL: In vredestijd werd ze als erotische danseres bejubeld en bemind door de machtigste mannen van het continent. In oorlogstijd werd ze als vermeende spionne door diezelfde mannen genadeloos terechtgesteld. Waarom kunnen wij -honderd jaar na haar dood – haar mysterie nog altijd niet doorgronden? In dit theatrale liedrecital wordt haar verhaal verteld door acteur Josse De Pauw op een filmscherm, vanuit de verschillende perspectieven van de vele mannen in en na haar leven. Sopraan Claron McFadden en pianiste Claire Chevallier bieden een weerwoord met muziek van Mata-Hari’s tijdgenoten en met brieven van de roemruchte danseres zelf.

 

EN: In the time of peace, she was hailed as an erotic dancer and loved by the most powerful men of the continent. In wartime, she was accused of being a spy and mercilessly executed by the same men. Why are we – one hundred years after her death – still not able to comprehend her mystery? In this theatrical song recital, her story is told by actor Josse De Pauw on a film screen, from the perspective of the many men in (and after) her life. Soprano Claron McFadden and pianist Claire Chevallier offer a rebuttal with music by Mata-Hari’s contemporaries and with letters from the infamous dancer herself.

Rumour has it that this is the place to find out more about French pianist Claire Chevallier. Rumours are mostly correct. Perhaps you also heard she has a passion for Erard fortepianos. It's true. Check her collection. One could say she is into the arts, all arts. Well, she's an artist herself and she loves working with colleagues, in music, in theatre, in dance, in visuals arts. Check her projects. And should you get curious, there's plenty of opportunities to see her live at work. No need to wait to enjoy her music though. It's right here. Enjoy.
