Wundergrund Opening Concert
Place: Hofteatret, Copenhagen
SCENATET will play the opening concert at the Wundergrund festival 2014. The concert will be a portrait concert of and with composer Jennifer Walshe.
The concert will, among other works, feature The Church of Frequency & Protein – a new version of an earlier work – recomposed for Copenhagen. – in which Jennifer Walshe will perform together with SCENATET.
Jennifer Walshe is one of the leading composers in Europe right now, recognized for her original artistic style. In 2014 she was presented to the Danish public as curator at the SPOR festival in Aarhus.
Jennifer Walshe is known for her wild experiments with musical and theatrical compositions and performances. Particularly well known is her project Grúpat – a fictional artist collective consisting only of Walshe herself – but in nine alter egos in the form of composers, photographers, sculptors, etc.. All nine fictional Walshe–artists have risen to the top and their works have been performed at the finest festivals by canonical ensembles.
SCENATET has worked with Jennifer Walshe since 2007. Her piece Everything you Own has been taken to a depot Somewhere from 2013 is a part of the ensemble’s Concert Walk and in the coming years Walshe will write a larger piece for SCENATET.
