Vocalist Cora Schmeiser, visual artist Geerten Ten Bosch, sound artist Anne Wellmer and lighting designer Arnold Schalks bring Cora Schmeiser’s new performance VOX SANGUINIS to life. Via poetic, associative, scientific, absurd and lithurgical means a non-narrative world is being created that is inspired by Hildegard of Bingen and results in a series of still lives in motion.
New vocal compositions by Giuliano Bracci, Kate Moore, Lukas Simonis, Boudewijn Tarenskeen and Aliona Yurtsevich set the tone for a performance in which blood itself takes us on a journey through a laboratory of visions.

Vocal performer and idea: Cora Schmeiser
Silent performer and scenography: Geerten Ten Bosch
Sonic performer and live electronics: Anne Wellmer
Lighting design and technical director: Arnold Schalks

VOX SANGUINIS was commissioned by November Music and made possible with a broedplaatsensubsidie from the Gemeente Den Haag and with private funding. Many thanks to Judith Schoneveld, CLOUD in Den Haag and podium OCW in Rotterdam.
