Rejse som lys der blir ved

With Rejse som lys der blir ved Anders has composed a new piece in dialogue with the choir Klang from Holstebro. The focal point is the air between us, what we share and what binds us together socially and physically.

The text is written by author Amalie Smith, about the air we breathe and share. The air can carry a lot of things, pictures, if you enunciate a poem, or aerosols, the tiny water particles from our saliva that float around in the air. In an age of corona mutations and face masks, this theme is more relevant than ever.

The piece is based on vocal recordings of the choir and was performed by a mobile speaker orchestra in the public space. You could experience the concert around the center of Struer during Struer Tracks.
