Benjamin Abel & The Unrequired Love

“... A spirit feared by the state is an awake one, awakening spirits, empowering spirits, this spirit can rise, once again, it can appear, like a transfiguring evening glow in whose light the evil day that proceeded...it could be forgotten! It could be some futuristic moment yet-to-come! That, that I would like, the nights cleared out, pain transfigured, spectacles affecting us again, touching us again, for real, appearing again, awakening spirits: touch me again!”  (Louise van den Eede)
Pilar
Countertenor, performer & opera director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe and producer Laurens Mariën join forces again for an electronic concert that fluctuates between being a spectacle and a love ritual. Various genres & vibes, operatic dada-blues-punk-pop, a high voice, dark beats & theatricality are what create the springtime of this grandly intimate spectacle. Together with dancer Hanako Hayakawa and writer Louise van den Eede , they cherish the hope for a different world; one in which people find one another around poppy fires, where spectacles have a freeing, primal power, where all possible forms of love continually switch costumes.
