During Serenade, a greeting to the other is offered by way of association, quotation, dancing and singing. 


Serenade is an ode to love in all its myriad complexities. The score is eclectic, composed of familiar and less familiar voices. A quirky celebration in which love is queer; disruptive, binding, fluid and elusive. Inspired by Franz Schubert, Louis Janssens depicts a night in which a web of stories, songs and texts come together. Thus a cerebral and emotional world unfolds that does not shy away from strong emotions. A greeting to the other is offered by way of association, quotation, dancing and singing. Serenade wants to be an invitation to watch, question and be curious about all that is stimulating and inspiring.
