Lawrence Batley Theatre 7.30pm,
Mauricio Kagel Kantrimiusik
Tickets £19 (£17 concession)
In his masterpiece Kantrimiusik Mauricio Kagel has created a sound world in which authenticity and genuinity can't be distinguished from imitation. The piece seems to be located in a foggy twilight zone of folklore and pastorale: Spain, alpine waltzes, honkytonk, jazzy rhythms, pampa and pusta are combined with tape recordings of rain, wind and animal sounds. Kagel expresses in a witty and intelligent way his concern about the destruction of nature and authentic traditional folk art.
