THE DEAD LIVE ON IN OUR DREAMS
At a time when most people, regardless of age, are withdrawing to the virtual reality of social media, and when the increase in aggressive interpersonal contact (and resulting decrease in human connection) have made individualism the rule, Hooman Sharifi explores the possibility of living together in harmony. The question is all the more pressing given that the continual growth of the global population is towing us towards overpopulation. Reduced living space and resources are the challenges facing the world of tomorrow. Through his art, and supported by his company of dancers, this Norwegian choreographer offers a space where each individual can escape their little bubble and experience the world through new eyes; in doing so, he hopes to forge new relationships, and encourage interaction and dialogue between people.
They are three on stage and it's one of Norway's most promising electro-pop band. The sing the hopes of the Sami nation, placing the joik, the traditional song of this people, in an urban electronic landscape. Let yourself be overwhelmed by this music from elsewhere.
