A performance on unease, turbulence, and stability

The Weather Report delves into the connection between aviation and the experience of bipolar affective disorder. Bipolarity is characterised by extreme mood swings, ranging from episodes of elevated and overly energetic mania to depressive periods of intense sadness, hopelessness, and low energy. Stage director Jon R. Skulberg uses aviation and weather phenomena to describe his lived experience with bipolar disorder.

Being airborne you experience weather vertically – through altitudes, cloud formations, winds, and sharp temperature fluctuations. Hovering between low-lying cumulus clouds and lofty cirrus clouds, a pilot’s job is to manage complex and changing weather systems. The Weather Report explores how we, as humans, navigate a life with instability and turbulence.

When turmoil arises in our everyday lives, how do we manage it?

"Det er svært at bruge ordet smukt om den turbulens man kan opleve i et propelfly, eller om en psykisk sygdomstilstand, men den ro som Convoi Exceptionnel skaber, og den måde Jon R. Skulberg fortæller om virkeligheden som han selv har oplevet den, rammer dig lige hvor du er mest sårbar. I hjertet."
