We explored our human desire to experience ‘sublime moments’ (in life, and in concerts). Confronting the paradox of wanting to experience them (as performers, and as human beings), but usually not getting them when we are trying to create or control them.
The performance was filmed on 28 March 2013, in Vredenburg Leeuwenbergh, Utrecht.
The concert contained music of a. o. Claude Debussy, Kevin Volans, Heinz Holliger, Bohuslav Martinu
