▼ LEGEND OF THE GREAT BIRTH
A scenic presentation of how five different European cultures view their own myths of how the world was created. Exploring legends through poetic texts, dance, film and movement. Created with funding through ”Creative Europe ” a programme of the European Union. Script developed in cooperation with Director Nikolas Kamtsis of the Greek Aeroplio-Topos Allou Theatre.
▼ FOOTPRINT – RETURNING HOME
A performance art project created and performed by Merete Klingen of Stella Polaris. Klingen has dived into the lives and stories of her foremothers dating all the way back to 1675, looking for connections and ties to her life and her self. What lies in our DNA? How can we change our DNA to pass on the strength, the wisdom and the unconditional love of our ancestral mothers to coming generations?
Conceptualisation and performance: Merete Klingen
Direction: Per Spildra Borg
Music: Gabriel Klingen Borg, Lars Beckstrøm, Andreas Strand Renberg
▼ THE DREAM OF THE SHAMAN
Ancient Nordic times considered poeple with skills to be shamans and priestesses. They lead ceremonies where mythology was enacted, exposing the very depth of Nordic folklore. This performance is inspired by these tales and it’s rituals celebrate life, nature and heritage.
Borg is leading a workshop culiminating in this performance, working with his own cast and local participants to re-create this performance on site of different venues and new casts at every performance.
The performance is created, directed and performed by Per Spildra Borg
