“You Are a Day Tomorrow”, a spatial audio play, experienced in a classroom. It is a memoir tying past and present, a personal narrative exploring the social dynamics of school and the institutional influence on the body and soul. It presents an auditory sensitivity analysis that examines nostalgia and brutality. “You Are a Day Tomorrow” is an invitation to listen with equal parts nostalgia, hope, and desperation, through headphones whilst sitting on chairs in a classroom.

The work is created by the performing arts company, Convoi Exceptionnel, staged by Jon R. Skulberg and developed in collaboration with writer Tina Åmodt, composer and sound artist Kristian Hverring, and dramaturg Astrid Hansen Holm.

“You Are a Day Tomorrow” is the third part of the “Trilogy for Educational Spaces”. Each part is set in a specific location, where the audience reencounters an institutional space from childhood. The company invites us into these institutions and educational spaces that are deeply imprinted into our bodies and minds. Here, richly atmospheric experiences are created in the setting of everyday life, away from the usual terrains of art. Convoi Exceptionnel explores three spaces – a gymnasium, a swimming pool, and a classroom.
