Scherzo For Piano And Stick

(This is a past event and is no longer running)

★ ★ ★ ★  “A really inspiring piece of theatre, dance, concert – choose which seems most appropriate to you”- The Good Review“…clever, witty and unassuming …funny, really funny”- Northern Soul

“Magic… dance theatre at it’s most beguiling … pure pleasure”– Reviews Gate

“Captivating music, precise movements and words in varying rhythms, catchy song, rousing dance – these are the ingredients deftly spun together to surprise, move and amuse us.” – Denmark’s Holstebro Daglad on SCHERZO Sept 2016 


SCHERZO for Piano and Stick is a dramatic duologue for piano and stick. In homage to Italian cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli’s celebrated 1970s cartoon series, La Linea, Mia Theil Have performs with a 1.90m long wooden stick in this fast-paced, meticulously crafted physical performance punctuated with short poems by Peter Oswald.

With an original live score by Nikola Kodjabashia that moves between contemporary classical, world music and jazz, SCHERZO is a shifting landscape of images and emotions, a kaleidoscope of imaginative transformations which are in turn light and impish and darkly unsettling.

SCHERZO for piano and stick follows in the footsteps of INSOMNIA a pas de deux drama for two girls and a piano man
