SED LUX PERMANET
In his “Requiem” Gabriel Fauré illustrates a peaceful image of death. With the choir “In paradisum” his piece ends on a hopeful note. Here, death is returning home into the light, not a gruesome end.
Swiss choreographer Ken Ossola does not deny the spiritual essence of the piece which originated in the end of the 19th century, yet adds a bodily substance that is beyond all religious tradition.
