Last week we finally got the great news that Kulturrådet has granted us funding for a collaboration with Icelandic composer Högni Egilsson! Högni will be creating music for our upcoming duet choreographed by Lára Stefánsdóttir.
Högni is one of Iceland’s most renowned artists and has released music on the highly acclaimed record label Erased Tapes Records. He released his solo debut Two Trains in 2017 and has written music for for both theatre, TV and film, as well as toured all over the the world with bands like Gusgus and Hjaltalín. We are incredibly happy about this collaboration with Högni and we can’t wait for the premiere this autumn!
This week the ensemble has rehearsed at Spinnstudion in Gothenburg, with Lára taking part over link from Iceland. New circumstances require new solutions… We have also had a chance to discuss performance images with photographer Anna Ósk Erlingsdóttir and costume design with designer Charlotte von Weissenberg, who also did the costume for Miramos. More information about the piece will be announced during spring!
