We all hate something and someone. We hate the system when it doesn’t work. We hate idiots who jump the queue. Some people hate women, some hate men. Others hate queers, heterosexuals, believers, environmental activists, capitalists, left-wingers or right-wingers. We hate the people who destroy our lives and the world we live in. And we hate the people who don’t understand us and can’t see that we’re right.
Welcome to SONGS OF HATE, where a group of real-life net warriors occupy Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art. Some might call them haters, but they claim to be fighting for justice, a better society, and the life we all deserve. They have the right to say what they mean, and they can’t keep their mouths shut. Sometimes they have to speak the truth so loud that everyone can hear it. Sometimes they have to shout to wake people up. At other times what they say is brutal, because who’s really listening?
Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art has been transformed into a total installation by set designer Marie Rosendahl Chemnitz and director Tue Biering. The composer and songwriter Kirstine Fogh Vindelev has arranged the voices and put music to the hate that’s out there.
The choral work SONGS OF HATE can be experienced at night from 20.00-21.30. Tickets are bought directly via teaterbilletter.dk
The installation SONGS OF HATE can be experienced during daytime. Opening hours: Tuesday-Sun 12.00-18.00.
A big thank you to Stouenborg who has supported the exhibition with sound equipment.
