Ballad of the Rising Sun
Ballad of the Rising Sun, Monster,
8 t/m 10 June 2011Concert with Japanese vocalist Yuka Kawabe and Westlands menchoir.
The story of the ‘Balad of the rising sun’ is to be told by the means of a sequense of songs.
The focus is fixed at a person during the daily train trip from the hometown towards a working town, including the moment the character is engrassed in daily routine at the working space.
The story describes the perspective of the ‘labourer’ who is step by step shaped into a real person of flesh and blood, with private thoughts and adventures and holding a specific position in the surrounding world.
The ballad is a modest ode to everybody who’s only destiny is hard labour in order to follow the path of life. Read all about this project
