Revelations is a multimedia production based on the striking visions of the 13th-century poetess and mystic Hadewijch d’Anvers: she describes an ecstatic loving relationship with the divine Other. This work seeks out the power of visionary experiences and ecstasy in our contemporary context, based on inspiration taken from mediaeval and Renaissance music for female voices.
