With this special performance, we kick off the unique festival 'Beroert' together with the Velinx. An opening night that will linger long after.

Countertenor, performer and opera director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe and producer Laurens Mariën join forces once again for an electronic concert that oscillates between a spectacle and a love ritual. Different genres and atmospheres, operatic dada-blues-punkpop, a high-pitched voice, dark beats and theatricality make up the spring of this grand intimate spectacle. Together with dancer Hanako Hayakawa and writer Louise Van den Eede, they cherish the hope for a different world; one in which people find each other again around poppy fires, where spectacles have a liberating primal force, where all possible forms of love constantly change costumes.

Especially for 'Beroert' and to make the rapture complete, the regular cast is supplemented with a string quartet: Pierre Vopat, Challain Ferret, Ana Sofia Sousa and Mikko Pablo will lift the whole to an even greater height.
