will this moment ever let go? is a cross-cultural, interdisciplinary piece created in collaboration with my father and composer Magnar Åm, and will be performed by 3 dancers, 9 musicians (among others Asian Wings, Ellen Sejersted Bødtker and Njål Sparbo), a large chorus (Volda Vokal and Ensemble 96) and poet Jan Erik Vold, as part of Oslo Church Music Festival.
The piece is inspired by the classic Japanese animation film PicaDon, depicting the moments before and after the A-bomb over Hiroshima, and will tour to Japan in August. The work is premiering in connection with two conferences on the humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, organized by ICAN (International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons), and an exhibition on loan from the Peace Museum in Hiroshima.
