ABOUT A NIGHT WITH PLENTY OF… IMPROVISATION
Surnatural Orchestra and La "Machinàjouer" avec l'Immédiat meet each other to give us an hybrid live show between circus and theatre, featuring musicians, actors and the audience. Just the kind of nights the Surnatural Orchestra looks after: whimsical and full of surprises. The concert will feature new compositions but mainly all kinds of mad improvisations.

It's been more than ten years that Surnatural Orchestra plays with forms. We enjoy their music just like a child plays with a kaleidoscope, always amazed by changing colours and motives. Their protean music could be compared to a gargantuan party of nonconformist 'freaks' in the sense of Zappa's 'freak out' concept. Indeed, they describe themselves in a surrealist way: 'Orgnum Plyglotte', in other words, the 'Polyglot Organum' (a definition that will surely find its way through official dictionaries): "a musical whatchamacallit, a sounding torrent, a little crouched animal, a Surnatural Orchestra, almost twenty times ten musicians' fingers with their sound and light chaperons for the enjoyment of ears and hearts." Depending on the show, Surnatural will waltz or funk following deliberately unpredictable musical ways

La "Machinajouer" is a workshop managed by actors, musicians and part of the audience. It's a protean show that allows you to create your own piece at your own pace, partly out of control but really crafty. Everyone can feel the creation in progress!
The Surnatural collective is sponsored by DRAC Ile-de-France/State Department of Culture and Communication, by Région Ile-de-France (Cultural and Artistic Permanence service) and by Sacem (Big bands and Jazz ensembles service).
Touring thanks to Spedidam and ONDA, Surnatural Orchestra is part of the Fédération Grands Formats.
