For Ever Four Seasons
To our great regret, we have to cancel this performance and the rest of our program in Pakhus 11 and Koncertkirken due to the current situation with coronavirus. We are taking this distinct decision based on the call for protection of the public. We are of course sorry since we know what great experiences you are missing.
All our public and industry events within two weeks are cancelled. We will want to show these exceptional performances in the future to you and we are working to find solutions on how to.
All of you will get your money back for the cancelled tickets. It is our policy to keep you happy.
Part of the program Dansehallerne presents in Pakhus 11 in the Spring 2020.
The ability of man is the enigma of man, this for good and bad.
”For Ever Four Seasons” is a musical, choreographic, and existentialist work that insists on slowness. It is an act of resistance against the rapidly accelerating world.
Setting the contrast, Jon R. Skulberg and Convoi Exceptionnel want to give the audience a sensuous experience, which both pleases and disturbs while posing the fundamental question: What is the role of mankind in the Anthropocene era?
The dancer Kenzo Kusuda, liberates himself from the patterns of human motion to create the basic form of “nature”. The performer Marianna Kavallieratos, is a figure wandering in a probable and violent vision of the future – in a futile attempt to build a relationship between the outside world and a “nature” which no longer bears any resemblance to itself.
Anchoring the figures, conditions, and emotional states to the newly composed works of the cello duo Soma & Lil as well as the composer and sound artist Kristian Hverring, Jon R. Skulberg’s staging, scenography and light invites the audience to a series of images in the presence of slow but continual change.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Everything has a time. Everything has a space. All life has a body. With that in mind, Jon R. Skulberg begins his work, regardless of whether it is an opera, a performance work or a dance piece. As a director, scenographer and choreographer he works with spatial-somatic relationships. Body and space – meeting with an audience. Convoi Exceptionnel is like special transport and wide cargo. Like the sign found on large highway trucks, the company is a reminder to pay attention to particular weight and content. Convoi Exceptionnel is a transport system for the enigmatic, pain, the anxious and the possibility of hope.
