Maxime Pascal & Le balcon release film of Stockhausen’s Samstag aus Licht
Maxime Pascal and Le balcon’s incredibly successful performances of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Samstag aus Licht, is now available to watch on film, directed by David Daurier.
“Samstag aus Licht is a great prayer. It is a litany, an awakening, a hymn to death as much as to birth. Samstag is the opera of recurring nightmares, of unceasing loops and of freedom; an ode to animality and sorcery. Eventually, it is the formulation of a spatial dream; a ceremony that slowly unfolds until the final liberation.” Maxime Pascal
