My new work Thanatos will premiere on Dec 3, 2016, at Inter Arts Center, Malmö.
Thanatos is an experimental chamber music drama exploring the dark side of the human psyche – aggression, destructive urges, everything that is popularly referred to as “evil”. The performance involves four musicians, each of whom will be playing a theatrical role and expressing their character through music and movement on stage. The music is partly precomposed, and partly improvised based on instructions given by the composer.
The Mother – Ida Höög, recorder
The Father – Niclas Gustafsson, clarinet
The Child – Agnes Wästfelt, soprano
The Beggar – Simon Bång, cello
Music and direction by Martina Tomner
Produced by Martina Tomner and Ida Höög
Thanatos will be performed in the Red Room at Inter Arts Center on:
Saturday, Dec. 3, 18:00
Sunday, Dec. 4, 18:00
