Jenny Hval presents The Practice of Love
The Practice of Love is a multimedia production based on the critically acclaimed album by Norwegian Jenny Hval. The artist considers the piece an alternative landscape in which the listener is invited to wander through hints of natural elements and faded memories. The sonic scenery is inhabited by fictional nebulous beings that do not exist in real life.
The Practice of Love is a multidisciplinary immersion in music, literature and movement by Jenny Hval. Exploring sonic, visual and choreographic ideas while transforming voices, sounds and even bodies into texts, it investigates the connection between life and art, bringing together the possibility of creating art and relating to other people, while looking for empathy and a common language through speaking, singing and writing together.
Félicia Atkinson (Live)
Soaking in the music of writer and sound poet Félicia Atkinson is an equally mind-altering experience. Exploring topics of improvisation, deep listening, ambient and language, her sources of inspiration are ‘‘women who wonder, dream, and create vacant spaces in their art.’’ Her haunting sound is a mixture of field recordings and ambient music, while using reverberations of gong, vibraphone and marimba to produce sonic landscapes that are both eerie and serene. In 2019 she released her latest album ‘The Flower And The Vessel’ to critical acclaim.
Amsterdam based Dilettante will play before, in between and after the shows.
The Practice of Love is co-produced by Black Box teater and Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival.
