This spiritual and sensual experience is a three-part ritualistic lamentation on birth, death, pleasure and pain, told through song, chanting and movement.

Part 1: Gospels of Childhood / The Overture
Based on texts from the little known apocryphal gospels, this overture to the triptych tells the story of resurrection; its musical structure is based on the polyphonic singing tradition of Georgia, Bulgaria and Greece.

Part 2: Caesarean Section / Essays on Suicide
Exploring the question of freedom and its limitations, Caesarean Section draws on the music of Corsica, through which Bulgarian, Romanian, Icelandic and Chechen songs are interwoven.

Part 3: Anhelli / The Calling
A tribute to the Polish Romantic poet Juliusz Slowacki and his poem about possession by an angel, Anhelli’s musical score is inspired by Byzantine and Sardinian Paschal hymns.

1 ticket will be issued for all 3 parts of the performance.
