Digital Signs

~ a documentary piece by Solveig Leinan-Hermo ~

In 2015 we celebrate Solveig Leinan-Hermo’s 40th jubilee as a dance artist and Stellaris DansTeater’s 35 years. ‘Digital Signs’ shows excerpts from some of our performances over many productive years. The exhibition is retrospective, lives in the moment and gazes into the future.

The jubilee exhibition 'Digital Signs' is open at VERK in Hammerfest 03 - 08.11 with excerpts from historical digitalised material. Opening times: 1 - 8 p.m.

We exhibit photos from Solveig’s choreographies ‘Når tiden ennå er en våken drøm’ (When time is still an awake dream), ‘Geidosis’, ‘Villskudd’ (Wild Shot), ‘Dær Fastlandet Flyt’ (Where the Mainland Floats), ‘I Hengende Snøre’ (By a Hanging Thread), ‘Whispers - by The Pearly Gates’ and ‘Tangsprell’ (Ocean Antics). Programmes from selected productions will also be exhibited for more information. You will also find photos from when Solveig and Marie visited Findus, when the fishing factory was being demolished, and where Arctic Culture Centre later was built.

The films shown are ‘Isblomsten’ (Ice flower) and ‘Whispers - by The Pearly Gates’

We also exhibit excerpts from digitalised material from ‘Godt at Gråmåsen song’ (Fortunately the Seagulls sang), ‘Geidosis/Rissninger' (Geidosis/Carvings) and ‘Radas Avadat’, ‘Bare et Rykte’ (Only a Rumour), ‘Åpen Zone’ (Open Zone) and ‘Fyr og Flamme’ (Fire and Flame), as well as a film gallery of productions.
