‘Divine Excess’ by Kees Hin is a documentary about the first show by music theatre de Helling.
Divine Excess is an extraordinary piece which is both about ‘religious ecstasy’ as well as ‘sensual intoxication’. One focusing on becoming one with God, the other devilishly immersed in lust, both very closely linked to death. Purely sang chants full of devotion and spirituality, extensive expressive harpsichord-music and booming possessed electro-music alternate. The Sade glorifies evil, and the bible provides us with the opportunity to make the right decision.
