Premiere
OPERA21 & OPERADAGEN ROTTERDAM

On a beach near Calais a young refugee prepares himself to swim across the Channel, towards his new future. On the English side, on the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head, a (transsexual) woman bids life goodbye; in a few instants she will jump to her death. 
The new text by author Gaea Schoeters is mirrored by recently recovered Shakespeare-text. Composer Annelies Van Parys uses the Shakespeare-text as a libretto for a cycle of songs, which set the refugee theme in a historical perspective. The soprano is also the intermediary between past and present, audience and play; via other spoken Shakespeare fragments she sets the story in a different perspective, turning the personal stories into a sharp reflection of society, both in the 16th century and today – because the similarities are, alas, striking.

Lachrimae & Interludes
Hathor Consort & Femke Gyselinck

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.
