Audience are welcome to join a talk about the piece at HL-senteret after the performance

A dramatic music and dance performance that grapples with one of the biggest moral problems of the present era.

Såle (sole): underside of the foot, shoe or stocking; shaped piece of felt, plastic or similar to place in shoes; bottom surface of something. 

Featuring specially constructed music by the internationally acclaimed jazz/electronic trumpeter Nils Petter Molvær in collaboration with sound artist Jørgen Larsson, SÅLE deals with concepts around transference and reception, how enforced journeys and encounters make up a huge part of the way our culture shapes us as individuals.

SÅLE is a dance based artwork in three parts. The first part will be unveiled to the public in a special performance at Ultima 2021. The piece will be performed in its entirety at the Ultima festival in 2022. 


Forestillingen foregår utendørs. Vennligst husk klær som passer været og gjerne noe godt å sitte på. Det vil være sitteunderlag til publikum på stedet.
