Øyvind Torvund
Composition, Text, Drawings

The Norwegian composer and author Øyvind Torvund creates plans for future operas and it seems extremely unrealistic that they will ever be completed. It is a presentation of numerous fragments of ideas, which all spite the laws of physics and acoustics. The soprano Juliet Fraser and pianist Mark Knoop are on the stage. They sing and play the “Plans for future operas” and simultaneously find themselves confronted with an abundance of projected drawings, which Torvund uses to indicate possible visualizations of future operas. Here he is examining communication phenomena, in particular those that are spatially and temporally askew. How do you converse when you aren’t in the same dimension? What kind of friendships are these that develop and are strengthened beyond the general and special relativity theories? With Torvund this is an open field where, among other things, animals and sculptures sing romantic melodies.
