May 31st at 20.00: BARCODE 03 | Holland House
The BARCODE concerts gather a lot of different music material across time and genre boundaries and stage it into a new, performative whole. In the BARCODE project, artistic director, instructor and scenographer Jacob F. Schokking uses his entire performance artistic toolbox into the music. For him it is very interesting to combine the performative with a selected number of pieces, because here they create a whole new kind of stories in the tension between theater and concert.
Through a wide range of shows, Holland House has shown how much music can do for staging. In BARCODE they will show how much staging can do for music.
For the concert at the KLANG festival, the audience can experience several new piece, among others, a contribution inspired by John Cage's Solo for Voice 35, recorded by the Syrian actress Amal Omran in Tunis in 2015. Here she improvises over the anarchist statement "The best form of government is no government at all," as Cage has used for his solo for voice.
The concert also offers two world premieres on pieces by Rasmus Zwicki ordered for BARCODE 03. In the first piece, Rasmus Zwicki starts with a graphic notation painted with hair, and in the second composition Plantation, 6 wireless speakers have been given the role of a solo ensemble while being looked after and cared for by the performers.
The performers are Rikke Lylloff and Jakob Bloch Jespersen. Live performance on stage is accompanied by video material exclusively designed and developed by Holland House's artistic director, instructor and scenographer Jacob Schokking. The performers are Rikke Lylloff, Jakob Bloch Jespersen, Anne Plauborg Madsen, Jacob Stage, Suhair Omran from Syria, Khimini Jihed and Mouhamed Seddik Kekli from Tunisia.
