"In Madrigals, Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe works with the 8th madrigal book by Claudio Monteverdi. But since the emotions of love and struggle belong to all of us, that also applies to the performance of the canti guerrieri and amorosi. Privileges and dogmas do not exist in BAM's artistic universe, so the dancers sing and the singers dance. Monteverdi survives all that. More than that: his music is the perfect soundtrack for an hour-and-a-half-long ritual where our humanity itself is addressed and celebrated. Afterwards, I especially wanted to stay a little longer in this so liberating utopia, preferably around the campfire. With a guitar in my hand. It is also wonderful to see how BAM uses the entire theatre machinery to give form to his dream. And with a bunch of wonderful performers as well. Madrigals is a trip. Hang in there."
