An idea coming to life
Ealier this year I had an idea to create a performance with only vocals and dance. It is always a bit intimidating to create something new, especially something that includes having to ask professional artists and venues if they would like to join. Fortunately all I got was positive responses and my idea is now coming to life!
This weekend I went to Stavanger to rehearse with Tuva Færden. Many know Tuva as a great musician and hardanger fiddle player, but she is also a very talented dancer! In this performance Tuva is going to dance while I am singing norwegian traditional songs. Creating a performance is a very exciting process; there is always changes and new ideas, but also a lot of fun! The production will be performed at Riksscenen in Oslo, Descember 7th, as a one of three short choreographies. I am looking foreward to spending time on this project this autumn and to further develop my idea!
