Experience four aspects of the work of the artist duo Klejs and Rønsholdt in the borderland between installation, opera and concert.
“Racer” is an opportunity to have a look inside the laboratory of the artists at work – a preliminary study for the upcoming magnum opus “LoveRacer”, the most personal and autobiographical work of the artist duo so far. “Love is a racing car, and all through life we struggle to control the pumping horse power,” says Klejs & Rønsholdt, and on stage they work at high pressure in the engine room of love where the engine must be kept running at all costs. “Racer” is an aesthetic examination of the wish to have full access to the mind, thoughts and feelings of the beloved. Klejs & Rønsholdt have put themselves behind the wheel of the racing car of love and we're in for a high speed journey!
Niels Rønsholdt's “Unter den Lidern” with texts taken from the letters written in prison by Ulrike Meinhof was created specially for the concert room made out of glass at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin and first performed by the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin. The work is now being performed for the first time in Denmark in a blackbox version with the Athelas players.
Klejs & Rønsholdt will also be live-remixing video and sound recordings from their opera “Inside Your Mouth, Sucking The Sun”, and the Athelas Chamber Players will be playing new versions of the music from the show “Archeopteryx X”.
Tune in for a concert where the distinguished strings of the Athelas Chamber Players interplay with the raw multi media performance of Klejs & Rønsholdt.
