WEERLICHT


A collaboration between Lichtbende and
Het Nederlands Zangtheater.

Weerlicht is a cross-over between classic and contemporary choir pieces, based on the music of Meredith Monk.
A polyphonic visual surprise supplemented by the lively projections of Lichtbende. Weerlicht takes you to an unknown land where the idyll is disrupted by a devastating event that disrupts the community both materially and emotionally.
