Event Description

Presented with Capilano University

�L'Orchestre d'Hommes-Orchestre's highly theatrical experimental exploration into Waits� madcap music stylings ain't nothing but a rollickin' good time.�
- Avenue Magazine Calgary

...Armed with the colourful repertoire of uncategorizable American music icon Tom Waits, Quebec City�s L�Orchestre d�Hommes-Orchestres offer an event that is more of a carnival show or musical circus than just a concert. This bustling orchestra performs the music of Tom Waits using nearly 100 objects and invented instruments on stage.

In this powerful tribute to the world of Waits, the performers remain faithful to the spirit of his work, but also turn it into a playing field for viewers. Mixing styles and adapting the arrangements, these six frenzied multi-instrumentalists perform in front of each other and over each other, trading instruments and vocals, putting their fingers between the strings and spokes in their wheels.
