Mer- is a piece for five dancers and five singers based on requiem music about death, grief and pain from the Renaissance performed by the Pluto-ensemble conducted by Marnix De Cat, which specialises in early music.
The title Mer- refers to the Indo-European roots of mourir (to die) and la mer (the sea). The sea is a metaphor for death, implying the idea of ‘the great beyond’, a feeling of infinity and mystery connected to the afterlife.
