On Friday 17 March 2023 Nagelhus Schia Productions will premiere the masterpiece IN C by German choreographer Sasha Waltz in Bærum Kulturhus in Bærum (NO)! With 15 dancers from Nagelhus Schia Productions, NSP 2, and Sasha Waltz & Guests, and with Terry Riley's original music performed live on stage, this is an experience you don't want to miss!

The world-renowned choreographer Sasha Waltz's latest piece had its world premiere in 2021, and already the following year Nagelhus Schia Productions has obtained the license to perform the work in Norway. IN C has already taken the world by storm and is among others nominated for The New York Dance and Performance Awards, The Bessies 2022, where the jury recognizes exceptional work in choreography, performance, music composition, and visual design. In the picture, we see IN C by Sasha Waltz & Terry Riley, performed by Sasha Waltz & Guests (photo Yanina Isla). Read more here.

Carte Blanche, the Norwegian National Company Of Contemporary Dance, will open its spring season in 2023 at the National Opera & Ballett in Oslo with BIRGET; WAYS TO DEAL, WAYS TO HEAL, a collaborative work between choreographer Elle Sofe Sara and visual artist Joar Nango. The title is based on the Sámi expression “Birget”, which means coping and surviving in a changing environment. In BIRGET; WAYS TO DEAL, WAYS TO HEAL, Elle Sofe Sara, Joar Nango, and Carte Blanche invite the audience to a healing bridge between silenced generations and institutional guilt.

In recent decades, several Western states have set up commissions to investigate the history of minority groups exposed to systematic state abuse. Examples of this include the apartheid regime in South Africa, the boarding school system in Canada, and the systematic oppression of the Sámi people and the Inuit in the Nordic States. The question remains: How can sharing traumas and personal stories help create the empathetic space needed to rebuild friendly relationships with the faceless entity of the State? Through the performance, we will gather, listen and build a collective movement that makes lived reconciliation visible, rather than merely formalizing it. The performance takes a playful yet critical gaze at the State’s way of dealing with its colonial heritage. Co-produced by The Norwegian Opera & Ballet, Bergen International Festival & Nordic Next.

Get an inside look into the world of Virpi Pahkinen through the eyes and ears of photojournalist Florence Montmare. This brand new piece is published in Spirit & Flesh, an art magazine that intends to show both sides of creativity – the glossy surface and what lies beneath. Read the interview here.

-"My family lived by a lake and one cold winter evening I plowed a square on the ice. I started by tracing eights and hearts, then glided into an arabesque, while adding some arm movements. I tried to figure out the meaning of why I was doing the movements in this specific order.” Virpi Pahkinen on discovering dance through ice skating
