Aurelia van der Burght

Even the trees are crying

The installation EVEN THE TREES ARE CRYING by Aurelia van der Burght, initially created out of glass, ceramic elements and steel wire, has emerged following the disastrous world in which we live in, and from which we can’t leave. We are responsible and inevitable part of the catastrophic events that will occur. A process that is brought to an end very slowly, almost without notice, like an incendiary tumor.

Aurelia invited Hanne Schillemans – dancer, choreographer – to create a new theatrical reality in her own unique way by blending music and image with her movements. The music is composed by Ralph Timmermans, and he’s been inspired by the installation of Aurelia and the movements of Hanne. The performance of his music is done by musician Rob Cornelissen.
