In 2013 we met the amazing poet Nicolaj Stochholm. Together with him we created what we called «intense, noisy and velvety Impro’n’Poetry». It was a meeting between the feminine and the masculine, the angelic and the chaotic, which resulted in a memorable performance at HAUT at the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in 2014.

Sall Lam Toro is a Guinean-Portuguese Queer artist, curator and poet based in Aarhus, Denmark mainly working with conceptual live art, poetry, video performance and embodied practices such as butoh and improvisational dance.

Most people with even a fleeting interest in jazz will know Kresten as a prolific drummer and a mind-blowing improvisor. Now Kresten joins IKI : Masses as the first part of the three hour main event. We don't want to reveal exactly what he's planning on doing at Masses, but we promise it will be something to remember!
