An excerpt from a théâtre muscial HKB production of George Aperghis' Énumérations. 


A good friend and colleague here in the théâtre musical program is working on her Master's Thesis and asked me to participate in her staged program! We will be performing selections of Mauricio Kagel's Repertoire aus Staatstheater, a unique staging of Bruno Maderna's Solo for musette, oboe, oboe d'amour, corno inglese, and miniatures of Béa's own creation! 

Miniatures by Béatrice Laplante! Performed by Katelyn King.

Here is a clip of one of Béa's miniatures from our Workshop in January with Tassilo Tesche, and two videos capturing some of Mauricio Kagel's Repertoire aus Staatstheater and Bruno Maderna's Solo per musette, oboeoboe d'amore, corno inglese.


From September 2015 to February 2016 I was working in the Stadttheater Bern for a production of Heinrich von Kleist's play, Das Erdbeben in Chili (Earthquake in Chili). Under the direction of Ulrich Rasche, and music by Ari Benjamin Meyers–the musicians (Thomson Merkel playing electric bass and me on marimba) set a nice counterpart and interaction to the minimalist acting. It was so great to be a part of this production and to work in the world of actors! 

Kleists Das Erdbeben in Chili ist eine Erzählung über die zerstörerische Gewalt, die religiösem Eifer und fanatischer Moral innewohnt, ist ein atemloser Text von grosser sprachlicher Wucht - und eine Herausforderung für die Bühne. Regisseur Ulrich Rasche, bekannt für seine formstrengen Arbeiten, und der Komponist Ari Benjamin Meyers verweben ihn zu einer dichten musikalisch-literarischen Komposition.
