Premiere: Millennial History

A documentary-concert by Andrea Voets

Taal / Language
Against a backdrop of real danger and profound change, ten millennials have to forge a completely new reality by embracing contradictions, confrontations and moral complexity. They show us the way towards a total celebration of living an intense life – driven by the will to fight for each other, with lots of love and care. 

In the live documentary-concert ‘Millennial History’ we relive impactful moments in recent world history through the eyes of millennials who were there when it happened: the murder of anti-mafia judge Giovani Falcone on Sicily, the Troubles in Northern-Ireland, the unwanted ‘Children of the Decree’ of Ceausescu in Romania and change and unification in East Germany.

In interviews with musical journalist Andrea Voets, they reflect on the far-reaching consequences of the events on their lives and societies. The conversations centre around the ‘deep story’: the reality as they experienced it back then, as children.

Millennial History started as a podcast, for which Andrea Voets and composer/sound-designer Luke Deane combined hundreds of layers of music and interviews. In this live documentary-concert, all stories merge into one compelling unity composed, performed and sung by Andrea (harp), Luke (keys) and Sarah Jeffery (recorders).

Join them in the concert-hall, take a seat in Millennial History and let sounds and music carry you through bold and meaningful talks. This is musical journalism, to get where we are coming from.
