Théâtre Incliné in collaboration with Nordland Visual Theatre
Thursday 9 nov. 9 p.m, Frityren
A beautiful performance montage from a journey along the Polar Circle. A cool and visual stream of images and thoughts around what the nord is from a team of Norwegian, Finnish and Canadian artists. Is there a northenticity?
Nordicité is a quest. A wandering artist gives us an intimate testimony of her encounter with the North, and of her feeling of vertigo as she faces an immensity she cannot seize.
Visual poem where video projection, music, theater and dance move alongside one another, Nordicité is a journey within myths and realities, and a reflection on our capacity to understand the voices of the North.
Encountering the North... A few years ago, I went to teach in Nunavut. This is where I met the North, and I fell in love with it. So I walked the steps of the polar circle, I explored the land, I captured samples of humanity hoping to bring the voices of the North to the South. I met wonderful people and artists, the silence and the immensity. I wanted to show the North I had imagined, the one I had encountered. Magnificent. Out of reach. But projects are like relationships. Some leave you you marks like frostbites on your heart. I love you North. Because you remain unattainable. Because I will never own you. José Babin
