Dag in de Branding

Sat 13 November

Hosted by: Festival Dag in de Branding

For their 62nd edition, Dag in de Branding presents a concert by harpist Doriene Marselje and hosts a dinner at The Grey Space.

The landscape in which harpist Doriene Marselje positions herself consists of a sea of lights that dance and react to the sounds she elicits from her instrument. Marselje had this interactive light installation developed by Wilco van Iperen and Wouter Marselje (both students at the Delft University of Technology), thus creating a poetic setting for her solo recital, which is best enjoyed in the dark.

Following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Luciano Berio and John Cage, she aims to broaden the possibilities of the instrument and renew performance practice. The audience takes its place among the lights and allows itself to be carried away in this enchanting experience. Marselje links the compositions she selected for this program by composers Lo Shi-Wei, Isang Yun, Piet-Jan Van Rossum, John Cage en Toru Takemitsu to her own electronic sketches.


Single tickets for Doriene Marselje as well as a passe-partout for all Dag in de Branding events and locations are available via the links below. Before the concert in The Grey Space, Dag in de Branding hosts a dinner. You can make a reservation by purchasing a dinner voucher.
