JUNE 12, 2021 at Dei nynorske festspela: Performing an excerpt of MONTASJAR at Ørsta kulturhus at 21.00, opening for the concert Koparsongar.
PREMIERE AUTUMN 2021
MONTASJAR (constructions) is an interdisciplinary performance (in progress) which explores the local history of the construction of propellers and gears for large ships in Volda, Norway. In recent times manual labor and art has been separated and placed in different spheres. However, in this piece we wish to mount them back together by letting images and sounds from the industrial production become part of a performance where music, dance and film creates a dynamic whole, an artistic montage.
