“Ett motstånd mot det tomma”


Trumpet, voice: Rasmus Mikkelsen

Cello, voice: Filippa Westerberg

Poem: Ella Hillbäck (1915-1979)


“Din hud har sagt att jag är till.

Jag lever, har en kropp vid min.

Ett motstånd mot det tomma.

Här vid din sida blev jag till.

Du samlade det splittrade.

För du är till --- jag känner dig:

en annan hud än min.

Jag famlar i förvåning

mot denna hud och muskelvägg:

En naken gräns av människa.

Av samma ensamhet som min . . .

An exploring project - sound and movement


In the fall of 2021 dancer Oliver Poulin and musician Filippa Westerberg met three times to explore sound and movement together through improvisation.

They recorded the process and tried out different boundaries and impulses.


This experiment ended with 15 minutes on stage at the Contemporary Creative Artist “concert” in December 2021. Here they showcased the product of their collaboration with an audience to experience it with them.


Dancer: Oliver Poulin

Cellist: Filippa Westerberg
