<p>For the start of the 2022 season, Kontraklang presents the Berlin Trickster Orchestra – a collective that, like no other at present, is stylistically confident in its search for a sound language that is not only contemporary but truly testifies to the times.</p>

Based on the assumption of a postexotic contemporary culture, the Trickster Orchestra designs a new music that transcends genres and cultures as a matter of course. Traditions and instrumental skills become tools for improvisations that trigger musical innovations. In this way, the orchestra opens up completely new sound experiences in its concerts for musicians and audience alike. The collective brings together top-class instrumentalists from the fields of electronic and new music, global classical music traditions, jazz, weird pop and free improvisation. In the group sound, these influences do not simply fuse, but discover a shared, wholly contemporary musical language in their joint playing.
