If Björk and Blue Man Group had several love children they would undoubtedly look something like WE GO in their latest concert performance. Four musicians and three dancers form this international ensemble merging into a single organism of bodies and instruments. Their movements create the sound and music emerges from choreography in a humourous and tightly composed mechanism.
MUSIC FROM MOVEMENT is a co-production with Paradiso/Melkweg Productiehuis (PMP) and was presented as a work-in-progress at Melkweg Theater in January 2012 where the band Knalpot gave concerts after the performance. This was also the release party for
MUSIC FROM MOVEMENT - THE ALBUM
The album guest-features the Rotterdam based band Doktor Schnitt and the Dutch duo Knalpot with own versions of WE GO's tunes.
The performance premiered at Teater Grob during Copenhagen Jazzfestival july 10-14 2012, and was since presented at Teater Momentum in Odense, Baltoppen in ballerup, Odin Teatret in Holstebro and at BORA BORA in Aarhus.
The performance is made possible with the support by: Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, SNS Reaal, Statens Kunstråds Scenekunstudvalg, Bikubenfonden, Augustinus Fonden, Danmarks Nationalbanks Jubilæumsfond af 1968, DMF, Copenhagen Municipality, and Tuborgfondet.

Sometimes Ida replaces Kirstine in this performance.
Ida is an actress, and sings in the band Atoi (that is not active at the moment), playes the double bass, is a teacher and sometimes she dances around with us - and we like that very much.
Also involved are these fabulous people:
Allard de Jaager, NL - lights
Baldur Kampmann, FO - sound
Jeppe Worning, DK - costumes
Gry Raaby Madsen, DK - productionleader for Copenhagen presentations
Michael Bo Jacobsen Roepstorff, DK productionleader on tour
Allan Richardt, DK - PR
