A performance by La Plage in partnership with
Forecast (LX23) is a concert-performance based on a text written by Ari Benjamin Meyers with dramaturge Wannes Gyselinck, which analyses the climate crisis and the increasingly critical and irrational relationship between humans and nature, traverses the history of weather forecasting and phenomena starting with the true story of David Buckel, an American lawyer who set himself on fire in New York in 2018 in protest against the fossil fuel industry. A female performer declaims this intense and moving text, accompanied by three electric guitarists who give the performance a musical dimension with a vibrant energy.
Composer and artist Ari Benjamin Meyers (US, 1972, based in Berlin) seeks to redefine the performative, social and ephemeral nature of music. His compositions, installations, exhibitions and performances question the relationship between performer and audience, between performance and the real world, blurring and mixing the respective worlds and languages of music and the visual arts. Interested in public and civic contexts, he also imagines community rituals and new types of orchestras.
