Prose concert with author Josefine Klougart as speaker and Danish Chamber Players.
"Collage": Nature is full of revelations.

Collage with music and text pieces revolving around nature can be experienced with a view over Faxe Kalkbrud. A lyrical concert, where text and music touch nature in the form of short poetic pieces of music and read out episodes and tableaus intertwine. Music by i.a. Carl Nielsen, Saint-Saëns, Grieg, Debussy and Vivaldi.
Reading from Josefine Klougart's novel "Alt dette kunne du få" (2021).
Introduction before the concert to the Geomuseet's exhibition.

"We are nature” says Josefine Klougart, and she is particularly able to sense the coherence of everything, and to put into words the almost religious experiences that normally lie outside of language. We are in the middle of a completely all-encompassing natural crisis – we have the climate crisis and the biodiversity crisis – and both are the result of a lack of understanding that we are part of this finely meshed network of life, says the author.

In these years, the Danish Chamber Players have an artistic focus on nature, and try in different ways to sharpen the feeling towards nature through music. For this prose concert, we are in the middle of nature's elements on the edge of Faxe Kalkbrud.

Klougart has distinguished himself as one of the very strong voices of Danish literature (with, among other things, two nominations for the Nordic Council's literature prize and in 2022 with a nomination for DR's literature prize and recipient of Jyllandsposten's Literature Prize 2022). In her books, nature is a very central element.
