OPENING NIGHT - OPEN ARCHIVE #2
MESSIEURS DELMOTTE AND HIS JUKEBOX RECORDED ORCHESTRA - MONO FUCKS DOLBY SURROUND
Messieurs Delmotte, artist and dedicated dandy, put together a new performance for the opening night of Open Archive #2. Working from the concept of an ’archive’, he explores the nostalgic notion of a jukebox as a highly personal, often coincidentally assembled archive. Together with his Jukebox Recorded Orchestra, Messieurs Delmotte brings Mono Fucks Dolby Surround, a dancing performance in which two jukeboxes full of 45rpm records perform the star roles. Party along on funk, bebop and rock ’n’ roll sounds, bathing in a burst of kitsch and camp. Jokes, slapstick, puns and other crazy capers are guaranteed by Messieurs Delmotte and his Jukebox Recorded Orchestra.
