KORUS is the upcoming production from Below Zero. The title is the Swedish word for “collective voice” which is also the theme of the piece.In KORUS you meet four artists who are coming together on stage, unaware of what is happening in the outside world, unaware of the chaos that is closing in. They are performing incredible feats of balance, strength and acrobatics but when the outside no longer can be ignored, what happens then?
KORUS provokes the idea of what coming together really means. Through hand to hand acrobatics, tight wire walking and teeterboard the artists indulge in the risk of circus and cooperation. Cooperation is something the world thinks highly of, but when does the world really come together? When do people work together seamlessly? When the future looks dark, we do our best to survive, to come out on the other side. But we forget that we don’t want to be alone if we do.
The score for KORUS is composed by Mischa Grind. When the company first heard his music they were convinced that his artistic vision aligned with their ideas for KORUS and the collaboration began. Mischas music is influenced by everything from traditional folk music to the urban techno scene. The combination creates nuances of a magical atmosphere for the audience to dwell in and reflect upon.
