En konsertforestilling av og med Små Grå
A tribute to the everyday person
- A concert performance by and with Små Grå
"People have such good timing"
What does the little fact mean, what she did with her hair there? What sounds do we make as listeners? And when does that sound go from being appreciative to dismissive, and exactly what shade do we choose?
This is the inspiration behind Små Grås' concert performance "Melancholy Disco". That is, human language, timing, humor, seriousness, and what we get hung up on and think is important. And significant. Little Gray makes music of all this in their brand-new performance.
Composed music and improvised stretches slide into each other in this thought-provoking and humorous performance. The theme alternates between the everyday, like a creamy or polite small talk with another mother in kindergarten, and the big questions in life.
Nina Mortvedt, (Band of Gold) Mai Elise Solberg, (ONTZ, MEogI, Hanne Hukkelberg) and Benedikte Kruse (Pitsj, Plutselig Barneteater).
Små Grå graduated from the master's program in performing jazz and improvisation at the Norwegian Academy of Music in 2021. Sidsel Endresen and Snelle Hall have followed the work with "Melancholy Disco" and Jo Strømgren has been the outer eye.
