In vers gras vrijen
in de dood nog even na te geuren
- 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.
Livestreams via Sound of Ghent
The Handelsbeurs focuses on ambitious live streams via Sound of Ghent, a platform we developed ourselves.
We look beyond the classical concert registration, with creative collaborations between band and director.
