AND UNDERNEATH THE EVERLASTING ARMS

Graindelavoix

AND UNDERNEATH THE EVERLASTING ARMS talks about sleep. Or better, about insomnia: the inability to sleep; deliberately postponing, cancelling and wearing it out. Or better, about the strange phenomenon the French name ‘sommeil’, dreaming without dozing off, the state of the sleepwalker.
The performance is a strange archeology of insomnia, with 16th century compositions of compline – the day’s final prayers – as central focal point (Josquin, Sheppard, Gombert, Lasso). Together with the ‘incantations’ of 20th century author and ‘insomniac par excellence’ Samuel Beckett (‘Still’, ‘For to end yet again’).

This prose of Beckett has never before been performed. This is a unique opportunity to listen to it in an extraordinary setting!
