Convoi Exceptionnel

CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is a staged choir piece with 12 singers, experienced from the edge of a swimming pool. In a physical study of water resonance, the singers float in weightless sequences while pondering on the paradoxes of a welfare state.

CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is a sensitivity analysis in the nature of inequality. A choreographic portrayal of the welfare state and its many flaws. The singers become a group searching for a common voice, insurgently longing for meaning. In their polyphonic strive, they uncover the imbalance that a class-based society creates.

The work is created by Convoi Exceptionnel and Jon R. Skulberg in close collaboration with composer Lil Lacy, dramaturge Astrid Hansen Holm, conductor Mathias Skaarup Sørensen, designer Kit Wan, and the vocal ensemble ENSEMBLE EDGE.

CRAWL CRAWL CRAWL is the second part of the Trilogy for Educational Spaces. This site-specific trilogy meets the audience at eye level, with rich atmospheric experiences in the setting of everyday life, away from the usual terrains of art. Convoi Exceptionnel investigates three different spaces – a gymnasium, a swimming pool, and a classroom. The performances created challenge the cultural codes of these educational spaces.
