Convoi Exceptionnel
For Ever Four Seasons

For Ever Four Seasons is a musical, choreographic, and existentialist work that insists on slowness. It is an act of resistance against the rapidly accelerating world. Setting the contrast, Jon R. Skulberg and Convoi Exceptionnel want to give the audience a sensuous experience, which both pleases and disturbs while posing the fundamental question: What is the role of mankind in the Anthropocene era?  

Anchoring the figures of the dancers, the conditions, and emotional states to the newly composed works of the cello duo Soma & Lil as well as the composer and sound artist Kristian Hverring, Jon R. Skulberg’s staging, scenography and light invites the audience to a series of images in the presence of slow but continual change. 

NB: Strobe lights will be used in parts of the performance. 

Everything has a time. Everything has a space. All life has a body. With that in mind, Jon R. Skulberg begins his work, regardless of whether it is an opera, a performance work or a dance piece. As a director, scenographer and choreographer he works with spatial-somatic relationships. Body and space – meeting with an audience. Convoi Exceptionnel is like special transport and wide cargo. Like the sign found on large highway trucks, the company is a reminder to pay attention to particular weight and content. Convoi Exceptionnel is a transport system for the enigmatic, pain, the anxious and the possibility of hope.

“(…) a disharmonious and provocative performance.” “In two pictures, the audience is led into a self-examination of humanity’s self-destructive behavior. We are roared to without words, we are screamed to without expression, we are thrown into reality” “I was frightened by this painful encounter with the downfall of humanity” KulturNyt.net “It’s beautiful and grim.” Iscene.dk
