To celebrate International Women's Day, Radio Sweden (Sveriges Radio) and Radio France will organize a classical music concert with female musicians. The concert "Hommage aux femmes dans la musique: Du romantique à l'électronique" was held on March 8, 2013 at the UNESCO Headquarters, 7 Place de Fontenoy in Paris from 8 to 9:30 pm. The concert was broadcast live to all European countries. Performing Pictures created a one and a half-hour long visual narrative, Ad Nos Converte (Turn Towards Us), especially for the concert.
You are distant, pondering something that happened during breakfast while you were talking with your beloved one. Life is something that might turn its benevolence towards us in the glimpse of a moment, as we look the other way.
The focal point of Salve Regina – one of four 'Marian antiphons' – is the plead to the gracious advocate Mary that she may turn her eyes of mercy towards us. The aim is to invoke a circular movement directed towards us. The essence of motion is temporal, as such, elusive. This is not a picture.
