Behold a Woman

Tiburtina Ensemble & Lieve Blancquaert

Word, image and song are united in a profoundly human production about the power and vulnerability of women all over the world.

Birth, marriage, death: Lieve Blancquaert took her camera around the world to make portraits of girls and women at special moments. Her poignant images recount the power and vulnerability of women, their suffering and resilience, their roles as comfort-givers, providers of food and mediators. Tiburtina Ensemble has discovered the same themes in Gregorian chants, folk songs from Moravia and the Las Huelgas, Calixtinus and Speciálník codices. The result is a unique production that combines words, images and songs about profoundly human emotions, at once universal and unique, taken from the lives of millions of women all over the world.
