Convoi Exceptionnel (DK)

For Ever Four Seasons
| Friday 11 February
At 15:30 – 16:40
Louhi Hall, Espoo Cultural Centre

For Ever Four Seasons is a musical, choreographic and existentialist work insisting on slowness, an act of resistance against a rapidly accelerating world.  Convoi Exceptionnel invites you to a sensuous experience, both pleasing and disturbing, while posing the fundamental question: What is the role of mankind in the Anthropocene era?

The two dancers' conditions and emotional states are anchored to the newly composed works by the cello duo Soma & Lil and composer and sound artist Kristian Hverring. Jon R. Skulberg's staging, scenography and light invite the audience to a series of images of presence in slow but constant change.

Artist / Company Bio

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 a particular weight and content. Convoi Exceptionnel is a transport system for the enigmatic, pain, the anxious and the possibility of hope.
