In vers gras vrijen
om later
veel later
in de dood nog even na te geuren
als hooi

- Gerard Reve

A swirling performance about life and death

In Greek mythology, Eros and Thanatos move in a dance of attraction and repulsion. Their play between life and death brings both passionate and subdued tranquility.

This is also the case with the music in this performance. Eighteen artists draw on their musical heritage, ranging from Roma and Arabic music to melodies and rhythms from Western Europe, Africa and South America.

Conducted by Wouter Vandenabeele and Luk Nys, this results in a poetic and thrilling concert.
