Is He On The Line…? takes us on a journey that explores the suppression of sexuality, concealment, hidden secrets, the avoidance of language, and the importance of ‘what we don’t say’. Working in collaboration with Icelandic composer Ingibjörg Yr, Is He On The Line…? asks what it means to be a people without a history. Four male voice singers work with original and verbatim English and Icelandic texts set against a projected environment created live using overhead projectors, using low-tech equipment combining drawing and light, playing with colour and form and generating theatrical images in direct response to the live music. Based on Jez’s research and residencies in Iceland, NATUR and Einkofi Production were proud to introduce this new music theatre piece, premiering in Hull at the end of March 2019 as part of Heads Up Festival.
