Valby Vokalgruppe
Anya asked us to find a location ’a little different’ from the spaces we would usually crowd into.

They closed themselves off into one of the rooms of the tiny apartment we had found right downtown. We let bodies filter in during this time, under the order that they not pronounce a word. The atmosphere, at first light and buzzy in consideration of the strange rules, quickly became tense, even irritating to some of the people present.
