Tomorrow's Child by Line Tjørnhøj

Tomorrow's Child is a opera, interactive sound art and an activist installation art by the American choreographer Jill Sigman and Danish composer Line Tjørnhøj

The children nobody wants, cast-off people in need of a shelter; these are the inspirations for this collaborative work. Like the people, the composition also needs a place to stay, to be heard and seen. With Hut #9, Jill Sigman teams up with composer Line Tjørnhøj to create a hut out of electronic waste as a site for the performances of Tomorrow’s Child. The cast-off electronics used in the hut hold much information, narratives that are silent and inaccessible, and they mirror the cast-off children in the music.

In all, the performance will be a combination of electronic soundscape, song, cellist performance and artistic performance with a go-pro camera streaming from outside the stage. 

In The Hut Project, artist Jill Sigman builds site-specific huts out of found and re-purposed materials to invite to reflection about waste and consumption. These huts - simultaneously dwellings, sculptures, and stages - act as containers for a rhizomic network of activities that include performance, community discussion, serving tea, and micro-agriculture. Previous huts by Jill Sigman have been built in New York City, Troy NY, and Oslo, Norway, with another coming in Sarasota, Florida.
