ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2015:
Jenny Hval - Apocalypse, Girl
SATURDAY 6 JUNE
BLACK BOX TEATER
KL. 21:00 (exact start time)
«Think big, girl, like a king, think kingsize.»
Jenny Hval dives into her personal deep at Only Connect. Her new composition, which has live premiere during the festival, opens with a quote from the Danish poet Mette Moestrup, and continues towards the abyss. Apocalypse, Girl is music that can’t quite be performed live. This live performance is brought to this stage in collaboration with the American video artist Zia Anger. Together Anger and Hval dream of a science fiction movie where gospel choir girls are punks and run the world with auto-erotic impulses. It’s a gentle push from a doomsday cult, a soft desire for collective devotion, an ode to the pure and polished gospel girl underground.
Jenny Hval has developed her own take on intimate sound since her debut album was released in 2006. Her work has gradually incorporated books, sound installation and collaborations with poets and visual artists. For Hval, language is central, always torn between the vulnerable, the explosive and total humiliation.
In collaboration with Black Box Teater.
