Up in the woods – 2008

“Up in the woods” deals with the forest as a place that allows you to confront fears, hopes and longings. What do we feel in the woods, what does it trigger in us?

The idea for the program came up during a walk in the woods, a place where you often feel like singing spontaneously (and next thing you know, you wish for an entire choir to be there). But because it is quite difficult to get the audience to come into the woods (there was one performances under trees at the Uckermark Festival 2010), we brought the woods to the audience. 

The program includes works from Z. Kodaly, J. Sibelius, V. Tormis, B. Britten, and Bon Iver.
