An old house decaying, a mother passing away. WOOLF is a musical interpretation of Virginia Woolfs' prose that is overabundant with auditory and visual impressions.
Woolf is a musical project by librettist, vocalist Judith Scholte and composer, pianist Kino Haitsma. Together they embarked on a journey to translate the sensual world of Virginia Woolf to sound with songs and spoken word based on the novel To the Lighthouse and the essays Moments of Being.
“..I am hearing the waves breaking, one, two, one, two, and sending a splash of water over the beach; and then breaking, one, two, one, two, behind a yellow blind... ” Moments of being, Virginia Woolf
A child's memories of her lively and once beautiful mother merge with the slow decay of an old house as the mother is dying.
