From Heritage Space:

Domdom would like to invite you to a presentation by Kent Olofsson: “Composing the Performance”.

Kent Olofsson is a composer that is active in a wide field of contemporary performing art such as electronic music, chamber music, theatre, radiophonic art, composed theatre, dance performances and new music theatre. Since ten years back he has particularly focused on intermedial theatre where different art forms are intertwined and interplay on the theatrical stage.

At this lecture he will present examples from his works in this field and discuss compositional strategies, artistic concepts and collaborative processes. Olofsson recently finished a thesis called Composing the Performance: An exploration of musical composition as a dramaturgical strategy in contemporary intermedial theatre.
