Plantenes Stemmer

Simone Hooymans' sound and animation installation piece, Plantenes Stemmer, challenges visitors to discover a strange botanical world with mystical plants and their personal voices. The design of the animated plants was inspired by the Botanical Voynich manuscript, which was written by an unknown author in the 15th century. The installation includes miniatures from 12 international composers who created soundscapes for the animated plants. The composers are Benedicte Maurseth, Cheryl E, Leonard, Heidi Torsvik, Kala Pierson, Kanaris Keramaris, Lazerus Winter, Maria Jardardottir, Mari Kvien Brunvoll, Molly Joyce, Passepartout Duo, Sigrid Anita Haugen, and Stig Lundblad-Sandbakk.

Funsch Dance: EPOCH

An extended-length work that pushes the limits of duration, EPOCH unfolds over 12 hours, in a gratuituous surplus of movement, interrupted by moments of nothingness. Challenging the glorification of aquisition and excess, EPOCH argues instead for "unproductivity" and the transformative potential of time. The performance features an ensemble of 12 dancers, lighting design by Danielle Ferguson, and an original score by Cheryl E. Leonard, who will create an installation of found-object instruments that is played and dismantled over the duration of the performance.
