A spectacular, poetic, and thought provoking contemporary circus performance for a forest, an audience, and five performing artists.
Premiering April 30th 2021
Forest research from our pre-project, October 2020. Video: David Eisele
Played site-specifically in and with your local forest, BARK is about reconnecting with each other and with nature. The forest, the soil and the trees are the main characters of the performance, and co-create the piece together with the performers, climate scientists and outside eyes.
We combine a physical expression of group acrobatics, vertical dance, dance and physical theatre with contemporary soundscapes and poetic text, all performed up in, between, with and around the trees. Through being nature, reconnecting, and living utopia, we aim to convey a sensory experience that can change perspectives on our human natures, as a part of the biosphere.
BARK will premiere April 30th 2021 in Norway, and tour by bike during the summer and autumn of 2021.
Performed and co-created by: Heidi Miikki (FI), Abigael Winsvold (NO), David Eisele (DE), Frøydis Dahlø (NO) and Emma Langmoen (NO)
Outside eyes: Rebecca Tiger (SE) and Karen O'Brien (NO/US)
