Looking beyond our world into the great vast blackness of the cosmos we find five characters orbiting each other. Some are destined to converge, others to split apart. They all long for authentic connections in this otherworldly realm of celestial bodies. Caught between construction and deconstruction it is a marvel universe, strange yet familiar both beautifully simple and incredible messy.
With a touch of cinematic sci-fi, Merry.Go.Round features an eclectic soundtrack including Swedish rebel jazz band Je Suis!, NASA recordings of the solar system and iconic opera classics. Performed within a structure of scored improvisation the piece is never the same twice.
Merry.go.round is the latest and final piece in Maria Nilsson Waller’s triptych based on unclaimed territories.
