We repeat the success from last year! When you visit DanceFestival Barents, you won’t have to sit by yourself in the November darkness and ponder on your own after the performances. We like to gather everyone before we go home for the night. We challenge all the local Hammerfestians together with all our visitors to lift the veil on dance, and join in with our «Fog Talk» sessions. Here we share thoughts, critique, questions, wonder and joy about what we have just seen and experienced.
We gather a group of locals and invite them to watch dance with us, followed by a lively discussion about what we have just seen and experienced.
These sessions are free of charge.
If you wish to take part as a panel member, you get a free ticket to watch a performance. If you are interested, please get in touch, as there are limited spaces. Reservations will open soon.
