Today a collaboration between the artist duo Alexandrov Klum and the Stockholm Concert Hall was announced. Alexandrov Klum, which consists of Iris Alexandrov and Mattias Klum, will over the course of four years stage several performances of different topics, backed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. The first performance will take place on February 8, 2018.
Come see the artist duo Alexandrov Klum in the poetic performance "Sagor från Verkligheten" (Tales from Reality), where the duo together with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra stage a performance in which their stories together with film and music take storytelling to the next level. The duo takes us on a journey across land and sea, where we over the course of several acts, follow man and nature through stories based on both mythology and our perceived reality.
By combining Mattias and Iris creative visions and passionate storytelling, the artist duo work multi dimensionally through the use of projections of still photography and film as well as installations, music and vibrant storytelling to create immersive worlds for the audience to explore.
The artist duo are firmly planted in the science of planetary issues presented through a fusion of personal experience and fictional worlds. Through these stories they hope to bridge the gap between heart and mind, between dream and reality.
This morning Mattias was on the morning show "Gomorron Sverige" on SVT and spoke about the issues brought up in the documentary Vamizi - Cradle of Coral. He also spoke about the event he and Iris just came home from in Monaco, where the movie was shown for royalty and VIPs. Check out his morning appearance here, from about 3:23:00.
