Falling is something we’d rather avoid. If you fall, you are vulnerable. In our society, we focus on improvement: everything must be better, further, faster, more. But falling is part of life. Water evaporates, rises and falls as rain; people learn by falling and getting up again, by trial and error. What would happen to creativity if we were too afraid to take a leap in the dark? This performance by Schweigman& and the reed quintet Calefax is a musical ode to falling, an opportunity to face our fears head-on.
