In BLACKBIRD – REBIRTH, Hendrik Aerts [1976] explores the twilight zone and the afterlife. What to say to those who have passed on? In this interdisciplinary solo for a dancer, Hendrik gives a voice to both the deceased and the person left behind. It’s not just the mourner who learns to say goodbye, but also the dead. BLACKBIRD – REBIRTH will not premier until 28 February 2020. We are offering early consolation: during Boulevard, Hendrik and his team will be working on a composition for BLACKBIRD – REBIRTH. It will result in a musical lecture. Largely English-language, with Dutch surtitles.
