REMIXME: Hanne Hukkelberg & Fredrik Høyer
A commissioned piece by Hanne Hukkelberg and Fredrik Høyer in a co-production between Brageteatret and Kongsberg Jazz Festival
Hanne Hukkelberg and Fredrik Høyer meet in a concert performance where music, language, dreams and cosmologies are woven together. With two rich and different artistry with remixing as a point of contact, they meet director Nils Petter Mørland, who is theater manager at Brageteatret, to explore hidden spaces and new possibilities in new material.
"Being able to mingle with two of our time's foremost performers and artists from Buskerud during the jazz festival will be one of the year's great highlights for me. They are uncompromising and put their whole heart into what they do. I can promise an intimate, surprising and moving concert performance." Nils Petter Mørland, theater manager at Brageteatret
Fredrik Hoyer is a Norwegian poet, playwright and actor from Drammen, living in Oslo, best known for performing his own texts on various stages, television and radio. In 2016, he published the collection of poems Grønlandsūtraen, which was staged as a monologue performance at the Nationaltheatret. Fredrik Høyer is also one half of the artist duo Bendik Baksaas + Fredrik Høyer.
Hanne Hukkelberg's unique sound and talent as a songwriter, musician and singer have earned her convincing reviews from publications such as Pitchfork, BBC, KCRW, The Guardian, Metro and Uncut. Hanne is from Kongsberg and celebrates 15 years as an artist when she releases her sixth album in August.
Nils Petter Mørland is a theater manager at The Brage Theater - regional theater for Buskerud - and came from the position of theater director and founder of Det Andre Teatret in Oslo. Mørland has worked with both Hukkelberg and Høyer in the past, but never in the same performance. He also directed last year's audience success at the festival when he united the Valkyrie and Fredrik Høyer in the old Kongsberg cinema.
