Hospice Lazy, Trondheim, 2014

Hospice Lazy is a collaboration between Alwynne Pritchard and the Alpaca Ensemble. Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s idea of a “hospice des paresseux”, a place where lazy people can take refuge, the piece explores the many manifestations and implications of laziness through music, text, movement and specially constructed machines designed in collaboration with Vigdis Haugtrø and Trøndelag Ortopedisk Verksted. The piece was premiered at Dokkhuset, Trondheim on the 24th of November, 2014. Lighting design: Sune Schjelderup. Concept, music, choreography and video: Alwynne Pritchard.
