Requiem pour L.

Fourteen musicians from different continents come together around Mozart’s Requiem. In reconstructing that Requiem, they merge their own musical influences with genres including jazz, opera and popularAfrican music. The result should generate a new experience of the original western music piece.

"A performance about life that inevitably includes death."

Klara

"The maverick Belgian choreographer Alain Platel has never catered to purists, but I won’t argue with him. Not when the results of his pursuit of new artistic blends are as subtle, varied and stirring as this."

The Times

"A powerful and audacious meditation on death. Requiem pour L. confronts us with our own mortality in a way that is both sad and joyful, serene and boisterous."
