Deep inside the Global Seed Vault at Svalbard, in the dark and cold, the source of life and possible new beginnings are being kept. Here the world stores it´s future.

This scenario forms the backdrop of a new creation by choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen. The cast of 7 beautiful dancers give Frozen Songs a unique and powerful physicality, combined with poetic and often theatrical elements. With the combination of the scenographic elements, multi -media, light design and composed music this performance will create an experience out of the ordinary. Born out of the exciting encounter between international and Norwegian artists, this performance offers a unique experience which brings forth the most vital theme of today; the survival of our species.
