Talk 1 - Music & communication
March 11, 2021
The conversation was based on ShareMusic’s artistic lab at the Gothenburg Opera 2019. In the lab, musicians and singers who had previously participated in the Shanghai Opera met. Here, they mainly examined voice, communication and co-creation under the leadership of Stephen Langridge, who also directed Shanghai. How do we communicate in creation when not everyone has words and language available?

What happens if you're back to back? What happens if you're facing each other?
Is it possible to repeat what we've just done, or is that tedious anyway?
Do we always need to be in the present tense?
I think that the artistic community is waking up. And I think the education community certainly is and I thank you for that.
