about the programme

salon branoul

The New European Ensemble presents Salon Branoul. Music combined with literature on Tuesday evenings at The Hague’s Theater Branoul, an intimate theatre – Parisian style – close to the famous Hotel Des Indes. Imaginative programmes take you on a journey to discover how composers and writers have inspired each other throughout history. Dramatic actors read poetry and prose. Musicians from the New European Ensemble perform music which is connected with the texts. These musical/literary salons are highly accessible; afterwards you pay what you want.


The British artist Julyen Hamilton excels in solo performances where he combines dance with readings of his own poetry. He is an innovative improviser who interacts with his audience and relates text to bodies in motion. In each performance he creates a new interplay with words and movements, compelling and full of beauty, absurd and humorous. Julyen Hamilton often chooses his words because of their sounds. The musicians from the New European Ensemble perform chamber music by the American composer and environmental activist John Luther Adams. Nature is the major source of inspiration for his work, in which he searches for beauty and inner silence.
