And what happens at twilight, in the ‘hour between the dog and the wolf’? The evening will be musically framed with music appropriate to the texts and images of Van Hengel’s book. Afterwards there is plenty of time to ask the author questions and get him to sign the book. Registration is required and can be done via or 0592-317519.

A contemporary mystery game at the Baptist Church

the oracle is a contemporary mystery game. A theatrical ritual: 22 poems, fourteen stations and a man in search of a god within himself. the Way of the Cross Liszt’s is a work of great stillness. And inextricably linked to the divine. The fourteen stations of this Via Crucis, moments of the agony of Jesus, are reduced to the essence.

Bach-inspired hymns and chorales are combined with unison singing, pushing the boundaries of common tonality. Modesty is a first condition here, because the message is more important than the messenger. Leks Compagnie combined this work with ‘Greet God’, a dialogue between man and god by Eva Gerlach and Sasja Janssen, in a solo theatrical musical performance.

Groningen – Mennonite Church, Friday 4 pm, 10 euros
