Hathor Consort & Femke Gyselinck at STUK, Leuven (B)

In 1604 John Dowland published LACHRIMAE, or Seaven Teares Figured in Seaven Passionate Pavans. In between Dowland’s pavans we hear Annelies Van Parys’s Interludes: a contemporary interpretation of Dowlands melancholy. The ensemble chose to bring a sixth voice to this enigmatic sadness of five, with the addition of the dancer Femke Gyselinck. She has drawn inspiration from the concepts of Flow my tears: her movements can be seen as a choreographic visualisation of the emotions emerging from this dark poem.
