Art of Spectra are very happy to have been invited to create a part of the Point Couds in Point music festival at the Concert house in Gothenburg (SE) 23-26 May 2019. The company created and performed shorter performances and pop-up events in the house during two days of the festival.
The Point music took place for the very first time, acclaimed by the critics and celebrated by the audiences. Read more here.
“Trash bags! Already in the entry hall of the Concerthaus at Götaplatsen, the cultural heart of the city, you almost stumble over them. Does the Gothenburg waste management lack efficiency, especially today when a new music festival is launched? No: Suddenly the black bag moves, they become alive. They tip toe through the incoming, dumbfounded audience and sink back to the ground a few meters further. Not only the children are spontaneously enchanted by the innovativ nonsense of the Companie “Art of Spectra”: by a friendly gentleman on stilts, by mysterious slow-walkers or frozen living pictures, which sink into motionlessness after a few seconds of suddenly erupting movements. In fact, this creates a special atmosphere that secures the first “Point Music Festival” in Gothenburg; a cohesion that goes beyond a mere concentrated series of concerts.”
