I'm in Trondheim right now working on my dance performance "LITTLE SISTER". I came here last wednesday. The last couple of days I've been working with the dancers on timing music and choreography. "LITTLE SISTER" is a 45 minute dance performance about a little sister and a big sister and their relationship. The "soundtrack" is a pice of music which I wrote this summer. The music will be performed by me and 10 kids playing the violin. Tomorrow the dancers and the orchestra will meet for the very first time. I'm very excited! The big premier is on Thursday October 22nd at Olavshallens lille sal in Trondheim. It starts at 7 pm. Welcome!
Sunday is workday! Sitting by my grandfathers desk working on my computer listening to Jim O' Rourke. I 'm working on some details regarding my dance performance "Little Sister". I'm going to Trondheim next wednesday to work with the dancers for a couple of days. I might have to do some small changes to the music before meeting up whit the orchestra on monday October 19th There are 10 kids between 10 and 12 years old in the orchestra. They are all from Trondheim Kommunale Kulturskole ( the local music school in Trondheim) and they play the violin! The premier is Thursday October 22nd. I've been working on this piece for almost two years and it feels kind of surreal that the time has come. Must admit, I'm a little unfocused today. So much more fun taking funny pics with my mask on and making blog posts. I just posted one at the Little Sister blog as well. Check it out!
The last couple of months my life's been nothing but work, work and work and a train ride back and forth to work everyday. I've just started a new part time job in Hillerød, Denmark. Here I'm working at a youth club for youngsters with different handicap. I work at the Theatre and Music program of course. The new job is wonderful in every way. Wonderful co-workers and wonderful young people. On top of this I'm working on my dance performance, "Little Sister". The premier is coming up in just a few weeks. It takes place in Trondheim, Norway. I'm very excited. Almost too excited.... And then of course I'm working on writing som new Stina Stjern- stuff.
