A celebration of life – and a disturbing yet beautiful concert performance about the basis of our existence.

The composer duo Sagn has created a musical work about humankind’s relationship to nature. With the aid of the artistic team they have developed a concert performance that touches on some of the most central problems the world faces today. The temperature is rising, the weather is becoming more and more extreme, and newspapers claim that by 2050 the ocean will contain more plastic than fish.

Bodil Lunde Rørtveit’s versatile voice is at the centre of the work alongside the percussion of Terje Isungset. Though the performance is without words, that does not mean it does not express an opinion; on the contrary, it does so with force. The set is inspired by Chris Jordan’s photographs of bird carcasses with plastic in their stomachs, built up from feathers, bones and plastic waste. This also is the basis for a unique soundscape. Through an auditive and visual universe we turn our sights inward into ourselves, and see how we as individuals and as a society together create a common future.
