Location performance that transports you to a mysterious subterranean world
Mees Vervuurt & O. (NL)
VACUÜM takes you to the old drinking water cisterns at the foot of the Meuse hills. You dive into a subterranean world as drops drip from the ceiling. It causes our sense of time to fade. The enormous resonance, which appears to last forever, forces us to listen more slowly until time and space start to fuse. We see nothing but hear everything. The space begins to dominate. Expect a musical performance in which space, light and singing immerse you in an eternal echo.
Composer and director Mees Vervuurt has created new work especially for this space. The relationship between the audience and the space is his point of departure. It is as if the journey has lasted for years and you no longer even know whether the source still exists.
