The imagined testimony of Hildegard of Bingen

Online - Facebook & YouTube

8pm - 8.40pm

Online screening of The Telling's concert/play, Vision

The critically acclaimed concert/play by Clare Norburn is reimagined for a very special online screening. Blurring the boundaries of drama/concert, Vision explores the extraordinary life of the visionary medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen, alongside her haunting and distinctive chant. Vision aims to give an insight into the painful and visceral visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life. It is "an imagined testimony" as Hildegard, lies on her deathbed, revisiting and re-experiencing meaningful episodes from her past.

The Telling:
Clare Norburn, voice
Ariane Prüssner, voice
Jean Kelly, medieval harp

with Teresa Banham as Hildegard.
