Stellaris Dans Teater brings together a cast of professional artists from the Barents Region of Norway for 'Whispers – by The Pearly Gates’.
This performance work originated from the choreographer’s meeting with Alzheimer's, where she marvelled at the complexity of the brain, how different character changes happen, and how situations shift like a light switch between reality and an inner perception of time and place. Using dance and film the characters communicate with each other in a landscape seemingly real for each of them. Not everything is as they believe, or the way they want the world to be.
The performers take the audience on a journey into the imagination where a battle between the characters may have unknown consequences.
“A very strong and deeply moving performance that really makes you embrace life.” Eva Åström – Norrbotten Kuriren
“Dominated by arctic exoticism, feelings of the sea, earthiness and witchcraft. A multi-layered world created for the stage that aspires to break the boundaries of the senses” - Eeva Kauppinen – Teatteri and Tanssi
