Festival STEDSANS 2006 | Porsgrunn, Norway
A musical proposal with songs and body language for 3 house fronts, 50 windows, 70 chorists, 2 actors, 1 violonist and 2 atypical conductors.
SKAGERAK : a yard, offices, windows, a working place. The workers went out, another life begins. Sound walls, walls of words resonating, secrets whispered by 70 people down to 200 pairs of ears.
The windows come to life slowly following a very precise score, electricity runs like a sound wave which creates appearance and disappearance of the singers. A violon on a roof improvises. The voices sing in harmony, one voice, two voices, three voices… A rhythmic word swings bodies, hands, fingers. The choir punctuates, breathes, responds to the soloists.
The story talks of an old one-eyed viking , of a recalcitrant plug, of lightning and sparks.
The story talks of a crazy and brilliant scientist, a visionnary artist: an unforgetting experience…
