The ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions in partnership with the Perth International Arts Festival is pleased to present Tenebrae et Lux (Darkness and Light) in an exclusive premiere event .
 
The Tenebrae Responsoria by Carlo Gesualdo are a monument to a Cappella singing, traditionally accompanied by the movement and extinguishing of candlelight. In this extraordinary Perth Festival commission, esteemed visual artist Benjamin Bergery responds to and heightens the emotion of Gesualdo's music with a new light-based installation, using technology by fellow artist Jim Campbell.The result is a journey into darkness and light,  where Gesualdo's evocative 400-year-old works are brought to life by the full strength of St George's Cathedral Consort to create an immersive experience of unmatched power and beauty.
 
Professor Jane Davidson, Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions presents the work in terms of its emotional context, content and impact on Tuesday 12th February at 7pm at the University of Western Australia's Dolphin Theatre, ahead of the 8pm performance in Winthrop Hall.
