A nostalgic funfair is somewhere nice to escape to in a gloomy, pessimistic world. Spectacle Spaces is a marriage between the Ensemble Modern and a top class group of international varieté stars, comtemporary music and modern circus artistry. The starting point is Mauricio Kagel's Concert-Spectacle for artists and Variété musicians. This is linked to a new work by the Argentinian composer Martín Matalon, the world premiere of which takes place in Frankfurt on December 31st 2016.

This is one of the works in the HEIM.SPIELE series (you can find a trailer here), a joint project brought into being by the Ensemble Modern and Oper Frankfurt. With generous support from the Kulturfond Frankfurt RheinMain, the Aventis Foundation, Deutsche Bank Stiftung, Crespo Foundation, Dr. Marschner Stiftung, the Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt am Main, the Friends of the Ensemble Modern e.V. and the city of Frankfurt.
