.... A "Kill Bill" story .... but from Medieval Flanders !
Halewyn - audiovisual music project based on ancient Flemish ballad
Raphaël De Cock presents this contemporary performance based on the famous Medieval Ballad of Lord Halewijn (Ballade van Heer Halewijn).
During his travels, Raphaël discovered that there are countless variants of the ballad from Iceland, Hungary to even Sephardic Morocco, but the oldest roots apparently lie in the region of Flanders.
He brings together artists from different backgrounds in this project in order to create a full range of hybrid perspectives from the different "languages" that each of the artists play / sing / speak / draw / move.
The addition of new music (styles) and compositions provides a contemporary translation of the story, entirely in the sense of the organic development that the ballad also experienced through oral tradition since the Middle Ages, or even long before.
A female singer provides the heroine with a voice.
A singer-actor takes on the role of Halewyn ...
