BARBARA DRAZKOV (PL/BE) is a pianist known for her unconventional approach to classical music.

She creates her recognizable artistic language combining mostly contemporary repertoire with performative and theatrical elements, e.g. playing along with 2 Edison phonographs (WAX MUSIC) or with night vision goggles in complete darkness (INVISIBLE PIANIST), not to mention her bicycle concert tours within Europe (GREEN PIANIST).

Winning the Grand Prix and Sound New Award at the 13th Krakow International Competition of Contemporary Music has enabled her to explore widely the modern music field and has borne fruit in collaborations with numerous prominent artists.

Having lived in Poland, Germany, Spain and currently in Belgium – Barbara Drazkov gained a strong position in the European artistic scene, working with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, David Dawson, Wim Henderickx, Nicholas Lens, Szymon Brzóska, Pawe? Mykietyn, Manjunath BC and Zahir Ensemble, among others.

Barbara’s constant search for new ways of expression led her also to collaboration with traditional musicians from India, Japan, Korea, Congo, as well as flamenco and tango masters.
Recently she is exploring the possibilities of her instrument – by entering the world of microtones and piano preparation.

She has performed at festivals and concert venues around the world: e.g. Sydney Opera House, NCPA in Beijing, Rome Auditorium, Ars Musica in Brussels, Dance Salad in Houston, Warsaw Autumn.

NOUVEL ALBUM, NOUVEAU SPECTACLE “UATU“, jeudi 11 avril à 20h30

Aurélie et Verioca baladent leurs chansons sur un fil suspendu entre la France et le Brésil… elles ouvrent des petites fenêtres sur le monde. Avec ces deux filles là, on embarque sans hésiter le temps d’un voyage qui va du rire aux larmes.
“Aurélie, voix claire et mélodieuse, chante en français ou en portugais des poèmes qui swinguent et des sambas bohèmes, Verioca l’accompagne à la guitare et du bout des lèvres, telle une femme orchestre friande de sensations percussives et boisées. On est séduit, forcément.”
Extraits du nouvel album >

Aurélie Tyszblat : paroles, chant

Mise en scène : Caroline Leboutte
