FORGOTTEN

Choreography: Simone Grøtte

The performance FORGOTTEN digs into the collective and individual memory of the World War 2, in which Northern Norway and its inhabitants were hit particularly hard. Through authentic sound recordings, objects and movements the performance seeks to explore the mysterious nature of memory, trauma, survival and hope. To lose, to forget, to repress and recall. And to try to rise again.
