Bernard Van Eeghem - Ode van de Zee

tue 01/07/2014 > thu 10/07/2014

It is under the heteronym Àlvaro de Campos that Fernando Pessoa (Lisbon, 1888-1935) composed his epic poem "Maritime Ode" in 1915.
In this tribute he unfolds, unravels and explores in a magisterial and yet poetical way the wide maritime world of his age. It is also a great journey of the mind in which, drawing on his absolute loneliness, the poet explores and even transgresses the borders of morality to nestle close to madness for a brief moment.
Bernard Van Eeghem performed this text in his own particular way nine years ago already. Today he approaches it with a whole new inspiration.

Ode van de zee will première during the festival Theater aan Zee on the 31st of July 2014. Other dates: 1 & 2 August,20.30.
