MO'S - The Damn Jam Concerto
Waltzing to the telluric heartbeat of music and silently gathering stories, MO’ winds up his dream box to conduct a world of colliding sound.
Reaching well beyond the scope of a concert, MO’S world revolves like a crazed carousel… an orchestration of instruments, bodies, curio and verse, dancing with one another, a recital that has picked up momentum and is now spinning out of control.
Together with his band of samurai musicians and ghost dancers, James Thierrée has conjured up an evening of original music and lyrics wildly interwoven with moments of raw dance, humour and signature theatrics. A dismantled melo-harmonical concerto.
With melodic, exuberant waves of harmonic outbursts, MO' conjures his groovesque chronicles, mixing brass, strings, and baroque intermezzos with rock and electro sounds…
MO'S has erupted from the stillness of 2021, a durational process developed during the impatient hours of waiting for theatres to reopen.
