Tori Wrånes (b. 1978 in Kristiansand) is a vocalist and artist, combining voice and sculpture in the field of performance. Her use of sounds, musical instruments, costumes, props, architecture and sculptures deforms her appearance and creates new dreamlike constellations. Wrånes creates landscapes where everyday objects are reinterpreted as small adventures. Choreography with sound might be a good way to describe her work, be it solo or with multiple performers, like singers on bikes, musicians in a chairlift, or saw players seated in trees. Lately, Wrånes has been occupied with developing her own Troll-technique™; an improvised, non-verbal, language based on rhythm and temperament.
