Kr. 120 / 60

A performance about Endings, Crises and new Beginnings

by Teater Viva (Denmark).

A woman appears from the plastic trash.
Is she a wise prophetess, a refugee from western civilisation or a mad woman ?
The Past, the Present and the Future speaks to us through her.

The performance is developed in the meeting with people, places, stories, songs, landscapes, animals and sounds from the North mixed with inspiration from the very old Nordic poem Völuspá and current global themes in contemporary civilization about crises, clima changes, future and resonanses or dissonanses between all us living creatures on Earth.

With references to the Angakok – the shaman in Inuit culture and the woman figure Völva in Nordic culture, the performance makes the times meet and the song connect the worlds.

Idea, concept, soundscapes and performance: Katrine Faber
Consultant director: Rolf Heim
Video: Leung Ka-lun and Katrine Faber
Text: Katrine Faber, Völuspá from The Icelandic Eddas, Raven Story from Inuit Tradition, Universal Fish Story, Mary Oliver, The Holy Bible, and voices from the Western Civilization and from other cultures of humans, animals and the Earth.
