Thanatos, premiere Dec. 3, 2016

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
