BAR x Kristoffer Raasted, Ragnhild May & Morten Winther Nielsen
On August 13, 2020, artists Kristoffer Raasted, Ragnhild May, and composer Morten Winther Nielsen presented their collaborative piece Vandtrapper.
Developed during a residency at the Danish Institute in Rome in 2019, Vandtrapper takes its title and finds its starting point in the poem Vandtrapper (Water Staircases) by Inger Christensen – an essayistic system poem on five of the fountains in Rome.
The work consists of a compositional choir piece, that involves hydrophone recordings from the fountains in performative situations. At the event at Art Hub Copenhagen, the audience was invited to partake in an interpretative performance of the score.
