“Compressed sounds, fossilised questions and ideas for tomorrow well up from the pitwater.”
After the mine closure almost all remains of the mining history were erased from the urban landscape. Below the fields of Limburg the mineshafts still remain, flooded with pit water. pit water was friend as well as foe of the mining-industry and plays a part again these days as an innovative energy supplier. Ondertijds takes the subterranean pit water as a starting point for an audio-visual experience about industrialisation and work. Descending into the galleries of the past, soprano Rianne Willbers sings about the changing perspectives in the undertow.
