Trilogy III:  About the unlucky, angels and singing mutes / (ensemble) / Concert by Ensemble Nu:n: Gert Anklam – saxophones, Falk Zenker – guitar & live electronics and Cora Schmeiser - voice & recitation. Nu:n Vokal sets out to explore the sense of humour of the Middle Ages. In medieval pubs and churches they encountered surprising testimonies of sacral buffoonery as well as profane satire. Because the joke tends to lean on the earnest, because mockery needs glamorization, and laughter can't do without a tear, the program includes - as a counterweight to the portion of grotesque satire, sarcasm and self-mockery - a number of medieval songs that praise the more serious world view of that era. Sheer beauty and deep devotion appear to be topics shared by pious worshippers as well as languishing troubadours. Can we still laugh or cry about it after 750 years? / Sunday, 10 April, 16 hrs. / Goethe Institut Rotterdam, Westersingel 9, Rotterdam.

Trilogy II: The sound of mysticism / (ensemble) / Concert by Ensemble Nu:n: Gert Anklam – saxophones, Falk Zenker – guitar & live electronics and Cora Schmeiser - voice & recitation.
