This year’s Ultima will open to the clanging sound of Christensen’s piece, revived in a new time of war in Europe.
In the space outside the Borggården/Fridtjof Nansens plass (City Hall), Thorbjørn Christensen (the son of Henning) will pick up a sledgehammer and perform this physically gruelling, aurally inspiring wake-up call. Shattering the harmony in the name of peace.
Duration: 15 minutes
Immediately following this performance, Ultima’s opening concert will take place inside the Oslo rådhus (Oslo City Hall).
