         In this collaboration, created as a special commission for the annual edition of Festival Classique in The Hague (NL), the idea of melancholia in combination with outer and inner landscapes - so present in the musical works presented - serves as a base for the events on stage.

A direct, sometimes abstract relationship to the music takes place, proposing a performance in which music and dance combined enhance the underlining subtleties in the compositions.
