program note
"Het gaat over het verlangen naar aanraking en connectie, de behoefte om ergens bij te horen, te weten waar je vandaan komt, dat je wordt gezien, gehoord en genoemd. Het gaat wat mij betreft over bestaansrecht. - Door de tijdloze poëzie van Antjie Krog in gesprek te laten gaan met de meest recente nieuwsberichten, en de universele taal van muziek maken de uitvoerende musici een krachtig statement en zal de uitvoering altijd urgent en relevant zijn."
