Hello friends! We just got back from New York where we are working together with the extraordinary Sidra Bell and her dance company on our joint performance Mönster Outside. The piece will have its premiere in New Orleans in November this year. Stay tuned here and/or follow us on Facebook for updates.
Here’s a track from our new album “Spirits: Nursery Rhymes”, release nov 25!!!:
Our new album just arrived from the plant! We’re so excited! We call it “Spirits: Nursery Rhymes” and visual artist Sanna Haverinen has created a fantastic cover for it! The album will be released on November 25 and then we’re off for a short release tour in Sweden:
November 29: Fasching, Stockholm
November 30: Kulturbaren, Trollhättan
December 1: Dunkers kulturhus, Helsingborg
December 7: Stora Teatern, Göteborg
Whaaaaa!!! We’re releasing our 7th album “LIVE IN RIO”! A live concert, 13 tracks 63 minutes, with music from our last two albums, complete with improvisations, noise, distortion, applauses and baby cry. Release Friday 13th May! Here’s a teaser…
For some time we’ve planned the collaboration with critically acclaimed choreographer Sidra Bell (US) and Sidra Bell Dance New York (SBDNY). Together we’ll make the performance art piece MÖNSTER OUTSIDE, combining dance, music and visuals into a voyeuristic discourse about the nature of outliers in contemporary society. The new work has received a National Dance Project Production Award from New England Foundation for the Arts for a two year creative research module.
This week Sidra, and the company artist Misa Kinno Lucyshyn, came to Stockholm for a pre-production residency together with composer Per (Störby Jutbring). And this weekend already, Per, Johanna and Josef from NTO are going with her to New York to perform a short work-in-progress with the company at APAP.
