« Souvenirs d’amour » is a dance piece with choreography by Elsa van der Heijden and music composed by Garrett List. It is a true interdisciplinary collaboration of the Meuse-Rhin Euregio combining live performing arts and the Euregio religious architectural heritage. The music will be played live on stage by the String Trio of the European Orchestra Vivo !.

« Souvenirs d’amour » is divided into two distinct parts : « Dinner Time » and « The Mourning ». The subjet is pain and the loss of loved ones, but it also celebrates the human force that allows us to find again the joy of living. The universality of the theme, its nature and rituals, is meant to bring us closer together, literally and figuratively.
The event takes place in churches of the cities and villages of our neighbors in the Euregio Meuse-Rhin, and this, in the context of Maastricht’s candidacy as the European Cultural Capital for 2018..

Here is another little clip of « Souvenirs d’amour » in French. But my English speaking friends can at least see a little more of what its like !
