We enjoyed the first try-out of our new project 'Entre-Temps' in the Sint Stephanus church in Melsen.
Entre-temps is a voyage through an imaginary town during the night. Here and there, human activity is noticed and the story zooms in on the occupations of the people. But sleep is always lurking, blurs the perception, and therefore the difference between dreams and reality as well. In the Dutch medieval poetry as well as the French, references to this dorveille can be found and Bel Ayre was inspired by that. An orgue de barbarie (a small, portable barrel organ) guides the nocturnal travelers past secret lovers, praying monks, the lonely writer, the mother that feeds her child, the broken hearted, dream readers, the sneaky charlatan and the trance of the jabbering drunk for whom the dorveille lasts all night.
