The world quiet. Time is ticking. Other sounds take over from the traffic and the bustling street life. Space is created, and suddenly birds and the wind through the leaves are audible again.
WITHIN TIME is about time and music. What music plays inside when the clock is stopped? No more decisive rhythm, no guidance. Rest and sometimes an anxious not knowing. What is lost? What next?
WITHIN TIME departs from Monteverdi's Lamento della Ninfa. The soprano sings a stream of amazement and deep sorrow at an abruptly broken promise. A suddenly new truth arises. And this is a situation currently facing not one person, but the entire world.
In WITHIN TIME, Lamento della ninfa stretches and almost comes to a standstill. The silence that is created creates space for other music to flourish.
House of Makers is creating a new music theater performance especially for the Grachtenfestival, inspired by the difficult times surrounding corona. Experience this premiere in the Zuiderkerk.
