In the Dark Hour

Black Box Theater (Oslo)

Evening into night / Paulus Church / one-on-one
Performance: Liv Kristin Holmberg  In the Dark Hour*
It is a ritual for meeting the darkness, Les Ténèbres: a meeting with oneself.
The title is taken from the ninth section of Olivier Messiaen’s final work for organ, Le Livre du Saint -Sacrament (The Book of the Holy Sacrament), which provides the basis of the musical content. The performance is philosophically grounded in Heidegger’s concept of being- towards-death, where an encounter with one’s own fear and pain can be thought of as an opening of recognition; an opportunity to become real, to become ourselves.

Liv Kristin Holmberg is a research fellow in artistic development work at the Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo. Holmberg has a Master’s degree from the Academy of Fine Art, Oslo and trained as a classical pianist and organist at the Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo and the Sibelius Academy. Helsinki.
