Notes
For what seems like forever, since my early childhood, my agnostic but nonetheless spiritual ear is distracted by the overwhelming music of Requiems. This mass, celebrating the dead, exhorting them to repose, has inspired the greatest artists to create the most hauntingly beautiful compositions we still have with us.
I am fascinated by what motivated these artists to create some of their most extraordinary work:
Death, disappearance, things lost, inspire their ultimate gesture to celebrate a former existence.
And so, a few months ago, witnessing the chaotic journey our world is embarking on, it felt purposeful to create a piece about loss, about what is gone forever.
And jointly I feel that things hidden or disappeared create an inexorable need to search for them again. We will always be born, fall in love, die. But how do we live through it all? How do we celebrate the known and the unknown in one embrace?
That maybe what requiems evoke for me. The celebration of all that is gone and all that remains.
And so with the support of the great music from Fauré, Bach, Mozart, Gòrecki, and many more
Illustrious artists, we create a theatrical dance, moving, powerful, even funny at times, an ode to life and to things lost.
