Hotel Pro Forma invites composers, performers and directors from Denmark and abroad to a conversation about the role of music in the borderland of contemporary mixed genres between music and theatre, staged concerts, music drama and opera. What happens when relatively traditional approaches to performing arts clash with performative and dramaturgical practices rooted in a contemporary theater tradition? And what happens when boundaries of professional roles such as composer, performer and director are blurred or washed away?
