If our contemporary conception is dependent on Eros and Thanatos, the life drive and death drive linked to love, the Egyptian mythological story and the “Book of Coming Out” offer a radically different reading of the relationship between love and death. Death is only an ending if the dead person does not find the ‘coming out into the day’ during their journey of initiation. This ritual, described in the Book of Coming Out into the Day (better known as the Egyptian Book of the Dead) is a direct descendant of the union of Isis and Osiris.

With five amateur choirs the singers will be placed all over the abbey, the audience will be at the heart of a spatialised concert and the ritual journey of rebirth of Osiris, culminating in Isis’ love for him.

_A participatory project

In an effort to create a social link around artistic creation and musical practice, Musicatreize, in partnership with Culture du coeur, is forming the “Sortir au jour” choir. From all horizons: amateur singers, novices, social structures and people in difficulty; this group fully integrates the final creation at Silvacane Abbey after four months of rehearsals under the direction of the choir director Cati Delolme.

Commissioned by Musicatreize in co-production with Marseille-Provence 2018 “Quel amour!”. With the support of the Prefecture of Bouches-du-Rhône, Patrimoine Arts et Culture and the town hall of La Roque d’Anthéron. In partnership with Culture du coeur
