Fourteen musicians from across the world come together around Mozart's Requiem. In reconstructing that Requiem, they merge their own musical influences with genres including jazz, opera and popular African music. Appointed musical director, composer Fabrizio Cassol, continues to write a personal artistic history in which he brings together different musical cultures around a theme. On a theatrical level, director Alain Platel and the group look for a visual and physical translation of the images and associations that a Requiem conjures up: from the requiem mass to the mass grave into which Mozart was dumped himself. Cassol and Platel find each other in the way the blending of cultures manage to create a new universe. They previously collaborated on Bach’s St Matthew Passion PITIÉ! and the western baroque repertoire COUP FATAL.
