ENVY. One of the most hopeless and uncontrollable human emotions.
Closely related to JEALOUSY.
In this 21st century, society allows us to express our physical and emotional desires. Anger, pride, ego and aspiration. Yet ENVY is a big taboo. We hesitate to show it. We disguise it as something else.
The Concert Performance MISUNDELSE (ENVY) is set on exploring this fact. Acclaimed and relentless pianist and performer Eriko Makimura is going to draw this dark, human condition into the light. Together with a Japanese guest performer Yoshiaki Iwao and through an explosive programme of music (from Lunatic Lullaby to Paraphrase über "Dies Irae") and performance, Eriko Makimura will create a portrait of ENVY that forces us to look at ourselves.
Eriko herself says about the shows: “We are looking deep within and scooping out our darkest emotions. It might feel both painful and violent. But in the end, we will know more about who we are. Please come and share the experience.”
