This performance is part of “A Process of Re-assembly” – our opening week this fall season.

“This artist duo is unstoppable to the extent that even technology should feel fearful.”
– Morgenbladet on New Skin

Skeleton Woman is a site specific work, part choir piece, part scenic performance – and a live sculpture with ritual and mythical aspects. Embodied by eight singers and dancers, the performance will take place in the midst of the audience in an intimate experience. We recollect a primordial power that collapses and resurrects again and again, and give life to a new possible femininity – one that may be frightening, powerful and raw. 

Becker/Langgård last visited Black Box teater with their concert installation NEW SKIN (2017). They also collaborated with choreographer Ingri Fiksdal for the performances Cosmic Body (2015), Night Tripper (2012) and The Orchard Ballads (2011).
