Billy Bultheel and James Richards. Workers in Song
Mudam Luxembourg

March 29–June 9, 2024
March 28: Live performance

Part film programme, part chamber music concert, Workers in Song is a performance by composer Billy Bultheel and visual artist James Richard delivered between strobing, almost hallucinogenic screens. A choreography made of live music, projections and movements takes the audience through an extravaganza of sounds and images. TONY CONRAD’s Yellow Movie, from the Mudam Collection meets renditions of “Der Leiermann” from Franz Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise, combined with underground films, texts of bygone eras, fanship and poetry. Conceived as a modular structure, Workers in Song operates as an evolving organism changing upon each iteration, combining romantic string and flute interludes; brutalist interiors and nocturnal landscapes; breathy pop recitations and avant-garde classics.
