gotohell_web_finalWhen: October 7, 8 and 9 at 19:30. October 8 also 12:00
Where: Reaktorhallen, Drottning Kristinas väg 51, KTH, Stockholm

Go To Hell: gesture and sound on the threshold.
Go to Hell is an installation and performance work set on the threshold between gesture and sound and between the worlds of the dead and the living. The three musicians of the Vietnamese/Swedish group The Six Tones move through the subterranean landscape of the dismantled R1 nuclear reactor like mythological after-images. Fragments from the myth of Orpheus are double-exposed with the tale of a beheaded ghost from Vietnamese Tuong theatre. Evoked by the potential danger of the location, the audience is invited to explore an interactive and open form installation that relates to ancient myth and its bearings on experimental art of today. The choreographies and video art all relate to the gestural and conceptual content of Toccata Orpheus, a composition for guitar solo by the German composer Rolf Riehm.

Choreography: Marie Fahlin
Sound and light installation: Gerhard Eckel
Video and sound installation by Anders Elberling och Henrik Frisk
Video by Jörgen Dahlqvist
Music by Rolf Riehm, Henrik Frisk, Richard Karpen and The Six Tones
Lightdesign Sutoda.
