Pop music and true stories about youth, sex and gender.
Working with nine teenagers from Reykjavik, Iceland, the Teenage Choir of Love and Sex sing
songs they have written themselves based on their own romantic and sexual experiences. As the
choir travels it invites different young people locally to write songs with them and join the choir. They
sing for themselves and each other. They sing for love, curiosity and heartbreak. They sing for every
virgin, every slut and every thirsty bitch – so they never need to feel alone again. The project was
realised in collaboration with composer Teitur Magnússon.
