Two NZ composers in Danish international live concert

Death Lines - a Memento Mori Collection

Performances from five cities around the world – New York, London, Montreal, Melbourne and Aarhus – are united in one live concert. The concert mixes art forms such as poetry, singing, music and dance, performed by a range of artists, e.g. Cold Specks, who are filmed and projected on big screens in ARoS, where the Aarhus writer Peter Laugesen, who has released more than 50 poet collections, intertwine the different parts. Thus, the audience will experience them all playing together across continents, art forms, and cultural differences.

Memento Mori is an art genre that reminds people of their own mortality and thereby also of the strength of life. Common for the performing artists is that they all previously have worked creatively with death as a theme. With different art forms, different approaches to the same point of departure – death – are presented.

There lies a big technical challenge in making a live concert with people from all corners of the world because of the sound delay. The concert depends on fragile internet connections on which there is a risk of a sudden breakdown, just as life can suddenly come to an end. Thus, the project as a whole can also be seen as Memento Mori.

Artists: Lawrence Arabia (NZ), Gemma Peacocke (NZ), Sylvain Émard (CA), Cold Specks (CA), Voices of Praise (CA), Tamara Saulwick (AU), Peter Knight (AU), Peter Laugesen (DK).

Thanks to ARoS, Bournemouth University (UK), New York University (US), McGill University (CA), Art Centre Melbourne (AUS).

NB: The ticket only gives access to the show, not to the art exhibition.
Tickets for ARoS' art exhibition will be sold at a special price on the day, kr. 60. To claim the special price you must have a ticket for the Festival event.
