  • 01.10.: Guest curator for SPOR 2014 is the composer and performer Jennifer Walshe (IR, b. 1974).

    SPOR is happy to announce the guest curator for 2014: the irish born composer, performer and visual artist Jennifer Walshe of whom the Irish Times has said that "without a doubt, hers is the most original compositional voice to emerge in Ireland in the last 20 years”.

    SPOR 2014 focusses on the ability of the individual to take on multiple roles. Composers who are engaged through their activities as performers, film-makers, installation artists, writers. Performers opening up their territory to include playing instruments outside of their training, using their voices and bodies, developing new strategies of training and performance. This spirit of open-ness, of spreadability, of an expanded sense of engagement and the joy and curiosity which accompany it is key to the composers and performers presented here.

    See you in Aarhus May 8th to 11th 2014!
