Les nids d'oiseaux

Composed by Wally Gunn, Les Nids d’oiseaux (The Birds’ Nests) is a ‘community project’, a collective work, which derives its essence from meeting, listening and transmitting. Underlying this participatory opera, to be conducted by Manoj Kamps, are real-life experiences relating to questions of gender and sexuality. Taking the accounts of four members of the LGBTQ+ community as its starting point, Gable and Romy Roelofsen’s Het Geluid collective will write a libretto chronicling the perceptions of four families. The grand collective finale, dancing and singing, will bring together amateurs from Brussels.
