CLUB GEWALT is a music theatre-collective from Rotterdam, consisting of 7 multi-disciplined performers. The collective creates energetic and bold shows that flirt with opera, high art and amusement. Music always carries the main narrative. Being technically trained singers they make their own compositions, containing a broad variety of styles, using singing as the primary discipline. CLUB GEWALT is fascinated by the unlimited access to traditions and contexts, mainly given through the internet. In their work they temporarily appropriate these styles, to get inspired and transform it into new work and compositions. Themes are usually centered around the millennial perspective on the current world.
Inspired by and shamelessly citing Monteverdi, David Bowie, Marcel Duchamp, Peaches, Harmony Korine, Andy Kaufman, Andy Warhol, Wagner, Kanye West, South Park, Scriabin and many others, CLUB GEWALT aspires to create the Gesammt Kunstwerk of the 21st century.
