Sit back, put on a pair of headphones, and experience other people’s dreams. The French duo Kristoff K. Roll, which specializes in intimate sound theatre and electro­acoustic improvisation, invite you to an “audio siesta”. For the past ten years, they have travelled the world collecting the dreams of different people. This time, they will collect dreams in Oslo. These dream stories are mixed with an improvised soundscape during the performance – of voices, traffic, bird calls and the flow of water. The result is a labyrinth of sounds at the intersection of theatre, sound art, documentary and concert – a landscape in which dreams come to life.  

Kristoff K.Roll is a French musical duo consisting of Carole Rieussec and Jean- ­Christophe  Camps. Their joint incarnation as Kristoff K.Roll began in Paris in 1990, when they were both members of the seven piece turntable collective Arènes du Vinyle. Since then, the pair has been producing sound art with distinctive layers at the intersection between noise, soundscape, site-specific theatre, documentary and music. Many of Kristoff K.Roll’s compositions have received international awards, and the duo also regularly produces radio shows in France. Together with sound poet Anne­-James Chaton, they co­founded Sonorités, an international sound and poetry festival based in France.
