The award-winning Hotel Pro Forma and the Latvian Radio Choir have once again created a visual music performance. NeoArctic is a look into the global effects of modern industrial civilization on our planet. With its intense poetic and evocative power, NeoArctic offers no easy fix, but applies beauty and art as modes of understanding. There is a sensuality at play when images of hurricanes and fire storms are projected across the stage, or when noisy electrical impulses and choir sounds crackle dangerously close to each other. With NeoArctic, we offer a beautiful and aesthetically fulfilling production with a contemporary, urgent, and universal message that needs to be heard across the globe.
