Ser du Människa? – music event and mass for choir, actors and computer

20121020, 22:00, Lunds Domkyrka, Lund, Sweden

Ser du människa?”  is not only a concert. It is neither only a service or a play. It is perhaps a state of being, where you are invited to meditate.
Based on texts from the Book of Revelations, Olof Hartman, and Arne H Lindgren this event explores ways of relating to text, sounds, music and space  within the context of the church, containing a choir, actors, computer, and a mass.

Choir: Saxenborn Singers, Conductor: Joachim Saxenborn, Actors: Kerstin Andersson, Matthias Thorbjörnsson, Priest: Lena Sjöstrand, Computer: Stefan Klaverdal

The event is a part of  a larger project including a sound installation and readings of the texts.  This event occurs as part of the Lund International Choral Festival and readings of the texts in relation to the installation.
