On demand: Mea Culpa

Opera VlaanderenRecorded at Opera Vlaanderen, Ghent, Ghent, Belgium
Online until Monday 31 August 2020
Programme
Mea CulpaMusic: Various
Choreography: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui was inspired by Heinrich Schütz’ breathtakingly beautiful oratory Die Sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz for his Mea Culpa. In this work, the Belgian-Moroccan choreographer explores a shared sense of guilt that is passed on from generation to generation and has an impact that is felt even today.

Inequality, discrimination, colonization and slavery are questioned from the perspective of both perpetrator and victim. The bridge between the two is formed by Schütz’s music, which advocates reconciliation.
