ABOUT FROZEN SONGS
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.
