Requiem to a shipwreck

A requiem is performed in honour of a tragic event on the Greek coast. The shipwreck is not a relic of a fatal incident but a forgotten ruin in the landscape. It stands as a monument to tragedy, and a symbol of the many levels and depths of movement in the Mediterranean waters. Death is represented in the work as a result of a greater tragedy, which stays ambiguous and open for interpretation.

With the support of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Municipality Mandras-Eidillias.

Part of Requiems series, 2014-2015. Supported by AFK and Rijksakademie.
