A new performance play and a retrospective photo and debate book are some of the activities Martin Hall will be involved during this autumn. So far the highlights go like this:
- PROTOTYPE/PROTOCOL – NEW PERFORMANCE STAGE PLAY
In collaboration with the musical ensemble Lydenskab and the video company Staal Film, Martin Hall presents the new performance play Prototype/Protocol that will be staged at three different occasions during November 2014:
Prototype/Protocol is a story based on the broken chain of connection between three generations – a fragmented, highly personal memory protocol made up of letters, recordings and fictitious memories. Via videos, recited pieces of text and an ever-changing musical setting a collage-like story is told – a story about consequences; how the loss of hope in one generation may affect the next.
You can order tickets for all three performances here: www.teaterbilletter.dk
- BOGFORUM – BELLA CENTRET/COPENHAGEN
On Friday the 7th of November (17.30 CET) Martin Hall will – alongside journalist and writer Søren E. Jensen – present his upcoming 2015 release at this year’s major Danish bookfair, Bogforum at the Bella Center.
The new release is a so far secret project that Hall has been working on during the last six months. The presentation will be followed by a minor reception at the Lindhardt & Ringhof stand.
- MEN – NEW PHOTO AND INTERVIEW BOOK
On Monday the 3rd of November a new photo and debate book Mænd (“Men”) will be released, a book consisting of portraits taken by the Danish photographer Robin Skjoldborg during the period 1984–2014.
The theme of the book is “male identity” and the 256 pages also features a line of short interviews with some of the portrayed artists – participants such as Martin Hall, Danish filmmaker Jørgen Leth, actor Lars Mikkelsen (cover) and rock groups like Kashmir and Nephew.
- SPIL DANSK DAGEN 2014 – NEW MARTIN HALL POSTER
In relation to the national Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s yearly focus on Danish musicians and composers, “Spil Dansk Dagen 2014” (October 30), Martin Hall has been invited to design this year’s poster.
The day is an important occasion for all Danish composers and musicians in general. It is always given great attention by the Danish media due to the size of the country in relation to foreign markets.
