Diary, Random and Pickles

Musical theatre by Pierre Jodlowsky

“For me, being a composer means being an artist in a society, in which his art offers him absolutely no protection. Art is not independent from current affairs. (…) For me, being a composer means addressing events.” Jodlowski

“Diary, Random and Pickles” is a musical and theatrical work based on the newspaper articles and news reports which Pierre Jodlowski collected over the years, and with whose help the composer reflects on society and its changes. The five musicians of the ensemble LUX:NM together with a group of teenagers become the main actors of this composition. As musicians, performers and readers, they critically address current events. Socially relevant questions and trends are examined and artistic boundaries between music and theater are explored.
