    Welcome to an emotional landscape, an ideological minefield – a present day politically relevant performance in the intersection between music and theatre.

    Language: English

    Welcome to an emotional landscape, an ideological minefield – a present day politically relevant performance in the intersection between music and theatre – with Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People as its base.

    How can words create musical sound, and musical sound create dramatical meaning? On a stylized stage, Pendry + LEMUR explore a new form of musical performance. The form borrows from the direct presence of an improvised concert and the carefully selected direction of a theatrical text.

    Almost 140 years after Ibsen wrote the play, Pendry + LEMUR use his themes and conflicts as a starting point to explore if and how the paradox between the direct meaning of the word, together with the abstract music can answer the problems we face today, even though the Norwegian relationship with our national poet seems to be worn.
