Convoi Exceptionnel

Everything has a time. Everything has a space. All life has a body. With that in mind, Jon R. Skulberg begins his work, regardless of whether it is an opera, a performance work or a dance piece. As a director, scenographer and choreographer he works with spatial-somatic relationships. Convoi Exceptionnel is special transport and wide cargo. Like the sign found on large highway trucks, the company is a reminder to pay attention to particular weight and content. Convoi Exceptionnel is a transport system for the enigmatic, pain, the anxious and the possibility of hope.Convoi Exceptionnel, founded in 2018, is a Nordic production platform creating existentialist works, focusing on interdisciplinarity within theatre, opera, choreography, and installation. The company is led by artistic director Jon R. Skulberg and creative producer Lene Bang.

For Ever Four Seasons
is a musical, choreographic, and existentialist work that insists on slowness. It is an act of resistance against the rapidly accelerating world. Setting the contrast, Jon R. Skulberg and Convoi Exceptionnel want to give the audience a sensuous experience, which both pleases and disturbs while posing the fundamental question: What is the role of mankind in the Anthropocene era? The dancer Kenzo Kusuda, liberates himself from the patterns of human motion to create the basic form of “nature”. The performer Marianna Kavallieratos is a figure wandering in a probable and violent vision of the future – in a futile attempt to build a relationship between the outside world and a “nature” which no longer bears any resemblance to itself. Anchoring the figures, conditions, and emotional states to the newly composed works of the cello duo Soma & Lil as well as the composer and sound artist Kristian Hverring, Jon R. Skulberg’s staging, scenography and light invites the audience to a series of images in the presence of slow but continual change
