MAfestival 2016 "In Praise of Folly" - Bruges, Belgium


MAfestival 2016 is dedicated to Erasmus’s Praise of Folly. In this satirical treatise, humankind is mercilessly derided by the goddess of Folly. When the work first appeared in 1511, many took it personally. The resulting controversy found an echo after the recent attacks on Charlie Hebdo. How far can satire go ? Even today, the question remains unanswered.

In the trail of Erasmus’s spokeswoman, the MAfestival weaves a web of associations with folly. For instance, several concerts evoke the fantasy and naïve enchantment of childhood. In other performances, natural order is cheerfully inverted by dreams, magic and musical illusionism.

But folly can mean madness too – a fascinating phenomenon that takes on many guises in the course of the festival. Melancholy, jealousy, mystical ecstasy, intoxication and the pangs of love : each of these afflictions is passed in review. Moreover, several illustrious outsiders take centre stage, from Don Quixote to "Bess of Bedlam".

Music is more than a therapeutic cure : it proves to be an exquisite chronicler of madness too. This is shown by La Folia, the timeless dance that takes a leading part in this festival edition.

Like the best satire, the concert day in Lissewege revels in transgressive behaviour. Following the motto "Over the edge", the boundaries between folk and baroque, religious and secular repertory bite the dust. The subversive power of carnival and of the commedia dell’arte is highlighted as well.

This delirious edition of MAfestival Brugge unconditionally opens the borders between gravity and absurdism, past and present.

International Young Artist’s Presentation 2016 - AMUZ

The International Young Artist’s Presentation (IYAP) is a coaching and presentation format for young talented musicians or ensembles playing historical instruments or taking on historical sources. We challenge musicians as well as ensembles to present an innovative and original program. We encourage experimentation with presentation formats and creative approaches.


Coaching sessions - led by Peter Van Heyghen - are one of the most essential elements of the International Young Artist’s Presentation. We provide feedback on the concept and approach right from an early stage, and in a second stage the artists receive musical coaching from international experts. After the coaching, the ensembles will perform at historical locations in Antwerp during the festival Laus Polyphoniae. During these concerts a lot of Belgian and international organizers will be present, as well as on the network moment that closes the IYAP.

The selected ensembles will be promoted by the IYAP-organizers. They will be honoured with the title "IYAP Selected Promising Ensemble 2016".
