The String Quartet's Guide to Sex and Anxiety

Calixto Bieito, Heath Quartet

What is the relationship between sex, fear and music? The Spanish director Calixto Bieito and the British Heath Quartet bring tragicomic musical theatre about melancholy and burnout. Two important philosophical works are Bieito’s sources of inspiration: The Burnout Society (2015) by the Korean-German philosopher Byung-Chul Han and The Anatomy of Melancholy (1621), an essay by Robert Burton, one of the first to write about psychological disorders as a symptom of modern times. Four string players and four actors on stage reconstruct the melody of melancholy in a staging full of insanity, creativity and music. This show doesn’t have the cure, but you will feel better after seeing it.


Music performed by The Heath Quartet will include Beethoven string quartet no.11 opus 95 (the “serioso”), Op. 132 and Ligeti String Quartet No. 2.
