Since the 1950s, Ken Jacobs has renewed film art, and his latest work is the stroboscopic bombardment 'Seeking the Monkey King'. The original score for the film was composed by the forever groundbreaking JG Thirlwell, under the alias of Manorexia. The instrumental live music is performed by a septet, which challenges regular genre conventions. Thirlwell's talents as a composer are manifold - from post-punk via noise rock and abstract electronic music to compositions for the Kronos Quartet and Bang On A Can. Jacobs's 'Seeking the Monkey King' and Manorexia are presented live this evening. But first, Fish & Fowl takes the stage. Composers Niels Rønsholdt and Juliana Hodkinson together with the ensemble Scenatet, poet Ursula Andkjær Olsen, and photographer Anka Bardeleben created an elaborate audiovisual remix piece. The piece has been supported by DMFF and KODA's Nationale Midler, and the evening is presented by PIX, artFREQ., SNYK og Pumpehuset.
