About loss, grieve and how to deal with it

In an interdisciplinary performance, theatre maker Hendrik Aerts, together with violinist Diamanda Dramm, gives voice to both the dead and those they left behind. It’s not just the mourners who learn to say farewell, but also those who died. What ensues is a rollercoaster ride jolting through anger and sadness, in a quest for solace and opportunities.

Blackbird – Rebirth is a performance about loss, being left behind and starting anew. The performance is highly visual in nature, using poetry to transport the audience to their own imagination and remembrance. Words, images, sounds, light, music, dance and the body merge into emotionally comprehensible theatrical expression. The composition for violin, vocals and computer was created especially for Blackbird – Rebirth and is performed live.
