Boerka in landschap
For Boerka in landschap Krisztina de Châtel chose Museum Belvédère in Heerenveen where a faceless female dancer – enveloped in a burka – sounds out the museum space against an endless Dutch horizon. As a dance location, Museum Belvédère offers a stunning view, both literally and metaphorically. Heleen Hulst will play a selection of compositions for solo violin and viola by György Kurtág.
