RUHE at Radialsystem, Berlin & De Bijloke, Gent

Following the world tour after its 2007 premiere, RUHE returns for its 10th birthday. 

Franz Schubert and the men of Collegium Vocale Gent provide musical consolation. The melancholy desire for peace in the music grates with reality: beauty and cruelty are not necessarily mutually exclusive. An epilogue by Annelies Van Parys, who deconstructs Schubert’s Ruhe, schönstes Glück der Erde to a dissonant lament, and a quiet but grim video by David Claerbout remind us that a supposedly buried past can still haunt us today.
