Manos Tsangaris: Winzig @ Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival // 09 & 10 sept 2016



Intimate tour of Sentralen’s hidden spaces with the deviously inventive German composer

Manos Tsangaris, born in Düsseldorf in 1956 and trained under Mauricio Kagel, describes winzig (Tiny) - Music theatre miniatures / Theatre for a house as a series of music-theatre miniatures, or music for a building. Much of his work is concerned with disrupting standard listening environments and utilising space in radical new ways – as he plans to do here at Sentralen. Over a period of three hours, the public are invited to move in small groups between a series of around ten listening stations scattered all over the building. At each stage a performance using lo-fi electronics, self-built instruments and found objects will take place.

These poetic ‘private shows’, for a handful of listeners at a time, are an exclusive meeting with one of Europes most recognized composers. NB! The audience will be admitted in groups between 21:00-22:00. First group entry at 21:00. We encourage the public to turn up from 21:00 onwards.

With: Cikada, Oslo Domkor, conductor Vivianne Sydnes, Ane Marthe Sørlien Holen, Sigrun Gomnæs, Johanne Byhring, Amund Sjølie Sveen, Erik Dæhlin, Silje Aker Johnsen, Marita Vårdal Igelkjønn, singers from Ensemble 96, et al.
