A CLOUD OF MILK
Sunday 12 nov. 5 p.m., Frityren
Children from Hammerfest have worked in a dream laboratory together with a team of dance artists the entire festival week. Today they meet the audience with this unique and touching experience. What do you dream about?
A Cloud of Milk is a creation for three professional dancers and 8-10 children. The material of the piece is collected from the dreams of the children in “a dream laboratory” organized by the team and reworked into movement, light, video projections and sound. The scenes are inspired by different stages of sleep and the focus is on rapid eye movement sleep, the state between sleep and wakefulness, and lucid dream. The performers shift between the states of sleep and awake sometimes directing the dream or letting the dreams guide them. A Cloud of Milk a piece about distortions of body, sound and space – a recreated, surreal dream. For every guest performance the team works with local children and the piece will be modified according to the new dreamer team. This performance is not a traditional children's performance, but the whole family is invited!
