MO's – The Damn Jam Concerto
James Thierrée is one of those rare multi-talents who cannot be categorised as performer, author, musician, acrobat, film actor or director. With his Compagnie du Hanneton, he creates a special kind of concert in which music is the driving force alongside comedy and artful action. His current project "Mo's" tells the story of Mo, an imaginary crooner. Baroque intermezzi, rock and ghostly electro sounds accompany hair-raising and stunningly funny scenes that often enough seem to end in chaos. In truth, of course, the charismatic artist masters them perfectly: the orchestration of instruments, bodies, curiosities and spoken word, united in dance and theatricality.
