Swingers ∞ Club is a long-term collaborative project developed by Ensemble Lemniscate in the end of 2016 to establish and broaden cultural exchange between different ensembles, cities, music scenes and curatorial practices. The project centers on the idea of “swapping” one or more aspects of an ensemble’s defining traits with another.
The Swingers ∞ Club concert format centers around the “swapping” of 1 or 2 of the following curatorial points between 2 ensembles:
1. Repertoire: ensembles exchange repertoire. One ensemble curates what the other ensemble will play (and vice-versa).
2. Commission: ensembles exchange commissions. Each ensemble chooses a composer and commissions him/her to write a piece for the other ensemble (and vice-versa).
