The Choreography of Sound

An exciting and somewhat unusual lab lined up for Frankenstein’s upcoming excursion to Dansehallerne.

Artistic director Efva Lilja and dancer/musician Niels Bjerg will open the evening with some thoughts on the role of music at Dansehallerne and special guest Gerhard Eckel will present a talk on The Choreography of Sound.

After a short break a panel consisting of Niels Bjerg, Louise Alenius, Pelle Skovmand and Gerhard Eckel will each give a short Pecha Kucha style presentation before opening up for a discussion session with Kim Helweg as moderator.

Niels Bjerg will also present an excerpt from his work Blind, a piece created together with the choreographer Kirstine Khyl Andersen, in which two dancers carrying mobile loudspeakers shape the direction and movement of the music.

Time and Place

The Lab will take place on Monday 25 April at Dansehallerne, 19:00 – 22:00. Entry is free, but reservation (by sending an email to Katrine Dal) is neccessary since there is only place for 50 guests.

The bar will be open for refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there!
