Great Grand Mother

 A live voice installation by Mareike Nele Dobewall, Ann Mirjam Vaikla, Freya Sif Hestnes

Folkoperan, Stockholm, May 2014

Artistic Director: Mellika Melouani Melani



With our live voice installation we explored the relationship between audience and singer in the context of opera. In the Tempel Foaje a big sculpture formed up to the ceiling and spread like a landscape, overtaking the space. On top of the sculpture throwned the singer, stuck, unable to change. We shifted the characteristics of audience and singer by having the audience move and the singer fixed. By walking in the foyer and exploring the installation from outside and inside the structure the audience could experience different sensations.
