Mer- is a piece for five dancers and five singers, built on Requiem-music and other renaissance music. The music is executed by Marnix De Cat’s Pluto Ensemble, who are specialized in early music. This creation is meant for both theatre spaces and alternative spaces such as churches. It will be Claire and Etienne’s first creation based on a mixture of religious and profane music, full of drama and austere beauty. Dance and singing merge in a performance where death is recognized in a celebration of life.
