DOUBLE CONCERT

 

 

TILT, Forum for modern art, Oslo,  6. December, 1999

A performance with students from Barratt Dues Music Institute and Oslo Children and Youth Theatre, all between 7 - 14 years old, a pianist, a conductor and Goksøyr & Martens.

The music institute showed a part of a regular lesson in which they practised the Double Concert for violin by J. S. Bach. The mother of one of the girls was the conductor. A conflict emerged between the mother and daughter, when the daughter was making mistakes. The students from the theatre school sat on the edge of the stage and had their hair plaited by Goksøyr & Martens, before they interrupted the music lesson, by reading texts they had written. The texts were performed silently.

Duration: 30 minutes.
