On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, the festival invites the festivalgoers to the Jardin Botanique of Liège for two days of musical miniatures. 

In the greenhouses, the French soprano Jeanne Crousaud (Ensemble Sillages) will perform the garden-opera Éloge de la Plante by French composer Jean-Luc Hervé. 

Kasper T. Toeplitz will perform Topographie des ruptures, his new creation for bass and electronics. and Jean-Paul Dessy will present Le Chant des Chauves-Souris, a sound installation inspired by the ultrasounds of bats,

The performances are repeated several times. Starting times are determined so that you can easily connect the different concerts. For example, you can start with Eloge de la Plante at 2pm and continue at 3.30pm with Topographie des ruptures to end with Le Chant des Chauves-Souris. The same scenario is also possible at 3.30pm or 5pm.
