The multifaceted synthesis of the arts of music, song, dance, light art and clowning, mystical and world musical sounds - Dervish Turn Dance

Approx. 30,000 spectators experienced this unique musical work of art by Lex van Someren and the 25 participating artists in 2009 & 2010 and received it with great enthusiasm. In 2011 there was only one performance.


Impressive, novel and touching: "Lex van Someren's Dream Journey" presented a worldwide unprecedented stage and concert experience in autumn 2009. The ensemble around the visionary stage artist Lex van Someren presents a diverse mixture of graceful music, mystical singing, expressive dance and fascinating light art. The clown in his classical role as the "wise fool" provides cheerful points of contrast and thus perfectly rounds off this harmonious synthesis of the arts. The last tour so far took place in 2014.

The focus is on singer and musician Lex van Someren, who composed almost all the musical elements of "Dream Journey" together with his musical partner Frank Steiner. His music, often enriched with mystical set pieces, has its roots in many cultural circles and reaches the hearts of the audience in its harmony and beauty. With his four-octave voice, he allows music and song to merge and creates a unique musical sound experience - an experience in which it is not important to hear or understand song lyrics, but rather to surrender to the intoxication of impressions and allow oneself to be touched on the inside.

 

Together with his musical director and co-creative partner,Frank Steiner, Lex van Someren receives support from top-class artists. The whirling dervish dancer Shinouda - known to many from the RTL Super Talentshow 2008 -, the percussionist and O-Daiko drummer Nils Tannert and the Mongolian vocal wonder Enkh Jargal are also part of the party. The latter, with his under- and overtone singing as well as the steppe music of his horse-head fiddle, has already been on stage with many internationally famous musicians.


Professional dancers, such as Suna and Anne Brandes, who give aesthetic expression to the mystical and world music sounds, the Armenian cellist Vache Bagratuni, other musicians and the Ayam Choir are also travel companions on the "dream journey". "Lex van Someren's Dream Journey" was performed in 2009/10 in many renowned concert halls, such as Tempodrom in Berlin, Philharmonie in Munich, Wiener Stadthalle, Brucknerhaus in Linz, Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt, Kulturpalast in Dresden and on the festival stage in Bregenz.
