CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL

Convoi Exceptionnel (DK)
A staged choir piece with 12 singers, experienced from the edge of a swimming pool

CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is a new composed staged piece with 12 singers, experienced from the edge of a swimming pool.

In a physical study of water resonance, the singers are pondering on the paradoxes of a welfare state. The singers become a group searching for a common voice, and longing for meaning.

In their polyphonic strive, they uncover the imbalance that a class-based society creates.

The work is created by Jon R. Skulberg in close collaboration with composer Lil Lacy, dramaturge Astrid Hansen Holm, conductor Mathias Skaarup Sørensen, designer Kit Wan, and the vocal ensemble ENSEMBLE EDGE.

The piece is a sensitivity analysis of the nature of inequality. A portrayal of the welfare state and its many flaws. The singers from ENSEMBLE EDGE become a group searching for a common voice, insurgently longing for meaning – thus uncovering the in-coherent imbalance of a class-based society.
