LA CAMERA DELLE LACRIME

La Camera delle Lacrime is characterised by the double artistic leadership of the singer Bruno Bonhoure and the scenic director Khaï-dong Luong. Programme conception, repertoire choice, invitation of musicians and singers always occur after a long period of reflection and thought. This is a key strength and creates the unique identity of this ensemble. Innovation and the search for meaning are the two other constant challenges which this group has been setting itself since their formation in 2005.

With the help of specialists and academics, La Camera delle Lacrime’s vocation is the creation of dramatic practices. They fashion their shows out of historical sources from the Middle Ages, essentially from the 12th and 13th centuries, crafting a contemporary view which is aware of the distance between the medieval source and its sonic and visual manifestation during the performances.

La Camera delle Lacrime is supported in their research and artistic creations by the Direction Régionale des Affaires Culturelles (DRAC – Regional Direction of Cultural Affairs) and the Conseil Régional (Regional Council) of the region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Its professional performance activity allows this company to present their shows in France in landmark festivals and venues of classical and early music such as: Philharmonie de Paris, Festival de la Chaise-Dieu, Fondation Royaumont, National theatres and those supported by the government as well as opera houses.
