Hospice Lazy

Introduction to Hospice Lazy:
To work hard is good. To be lazy is bad. Morally, spiritually and socially. It is a dead weight to be jettisoned in our march towards the future. Or could it somehow bail us out? Marcel Duchamp proposed creating a ‘hospice des paresseux’. A place where lazy people could take refuge. With this in mind, Alwynne Pritchard’s “Hospice Lazy” explores the subversive powers and pleasures of laziness and inertia through music, text, movement and specially constructed machines designed in collaboration with Vigdis Haugtrø and the Trøndelag Orthopaedic Workshop.

Alwynne Pritchard is a British performer, composer, artist and curator based in Bergen. She is a co-founder of the music-theatre company Neither Nor and Artistic Director of the BIT20 ensemble. Her music is published by Verlag Neue Musik and she is managed by Maestro Arts.

“…playful, sinister and altogether riveting.”
– The Telegraph

Alpaca Ensemble derives from the piano trio Alpaca Trio, a versatile chamber group frequently collaborating with other musicians, artists and composers. They initiate innovative projects crossing and questioning boundaries between established genres, and have had numerous works written for them.
