Revelations is a fascinating multimedia project based on the visions of the 13th century Dutch poetess and mystic, Hadewijch. Her writings are among the most amazing texts in our literary history. Revelations aims to present the power of visionary experiences and ecstasy in a contemporary context. Composer Wim Hendrickx' sources of inspiration were medieval and Renaissance music. In addition, he has incorporated electronic sounds. Light and video art add mysterious dimensions.
