LASSUS, the Penitential Psalms

May 24, 2019

How do we deal with confession and penance today? With the Penitential Psalms of Lassus as a guide, documentary filmmaker Griet Teck and Musica initiated conversation with three women from the Penitentiary Complex in Bruges. Within the walls and strict regulations of the prison, a different world exists. The women themselves can not be portrayed, but with music as a medium and the texts of the Old Testament as a source of inspiration; Griet Teck sketches an intimate portrait of three women and their personal experience of penance and guilt. De documentary will be on view in Concertgebouw Bruges during the Masterpiece week ‘Lassus - Psalii Davidis poenitentiale. The film will also be shown after the concert by Vocalconsort Berlin and Daniel Reuss on May 25th in Concertgebouw Brugge, followed by a talk. 

A co-production by Musica, Impulse centre for Music & Concertgebouw Brugge in collaboration with Psallentes led by Hendrik Vanden Abeele, Penitentiary Center Bruges and De Rode Antraciet.

'Onder inspecteurs', artist Bart Lodewijks in a one-man show / video art by Griet Teck

April 20, 2018

Beeldend kunstenaar Bart Lodewijks begaf zich anderhalf jaar lang onder inspecteurs in het gebouw van de Nederlandse inspectiediensten in Zwijndrecht. Door zijn krijttekeningen tijdens kantooruren te maken merkte Lodewijks dat niet alleen hijzelf maar ook de inspecteurs regelmatig ‘om de regels heen bouwen’ om hun werk te kunnen doen.

With chalk and ruler Bart Lodewijks ‘draws-signifies’ his surroundings and captures it in texts, photographs and a documentary by Griet Teck. Leaving a trace behind, and the process, are as important as the visible result is temporary: the drawings are slowly washed away by the elements.

World Première on January 25 - Signals: Grand Tour 2014

Age brings infirmity. Dementia is on the rise in Europe's greying population. Observational Flemish documentary touchingly shows how the pre-war generation and their caregivers deal with disappearing memories and how music is often the last means of expression.

An estimated six million people in the EU suffer from forms of dementia such as Alzheimer's disease. Disappearing memories of the pre-World War II generation soberly and lovingly captured by young Flemish filmmaker and camerawoman Griet Teck. She filmed the daily activities of Louise, Bes, Denise, Louisa, Betty, Rosa and Jean for four seasons as they were supervised and helped by nurses, family and others.
The film exudes an unusually clear intimacy in its focus on the faces of elderly people struggling with their loss of identity; people for whom music is the final means of expression. This has resulted in an almost anthropological film about a very serious subject: bidding farewell to life and to who you are. The fragile force of life visualised in a sincere, non-pushy, unbiased manner.

'Our normal waking consciousness is but one special type of consciousness, while all about it parted from it by the filmiest of screens there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence, but apply the requisite stimulus and at a touch they are there in all their completeness… At any rate, they forbid our premature closing of accounts with reality.'
