The white deer is a potent mythological symbol, deeply rooted in the human consciousness. It is the connection to the other world, the primal dance of hunter/hunted, fertility and death, the numinous and the mundane.
The contrast between light and shadow is considered a central principal of baroque art. The programme “Le Flambeau du Monde” – “The Torch of the World” will take us to France between the Thirty Years War and time of the glamour of the royal court at the end of the 17th century. Between candleflame and the shadow of a heavy curtain, the poetry of the time leads us on a reflective journey through contemplation of the world, life and love.
