Between pop, anthropology, film and dance

Wars, climate change, migration flows, crises, and changes. We live in an uncertain time with an uncertain future that leaves no one untouched. Melodies In My Head, the new group by Norient founder, AV-artist and anthropologist Thomas Burkhalter and musician and producer Daniel Jakob (Dubokaj, Dejot), looks at these times from many angles, and has created a new concert format: between pop and electro, anthropology, dance, and film.

«Joy Anger Doubt» is a 75-minute audiovisual concert trip that speaks of today’s world sometimes through pointed interview statements, sometimes through dance and video, sometimes through atmospheric to oppressive images. The texts are largely taken from ethnographic interviews conducted over the last fifteen years with artists and thinkers in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. They bear witness to the diverse emotions people experience in turbulent times: Hope, joy, ecstasy, depression, doubt, fear, trauma, and anger.
