Heart Beats Light is a site-specific poetic light installation using Peter Terezakis
’ digitized heart beat set in the natural landscape. The two and a half meter high lights mirror fleeting life alongside dancers during DanseFestival Barents.
Light has a special place in the hearts of the people living here in the north, bearing a symbolic meaning in the form of mystery and spiritual experience. The lights beat as a heartbeat, and can symbolize parts of our lives, family, or one who has left us.
Together with choreographer Allyson Green, composer Alan Stones, and many friends, Peter’s Heart Beats Light has come to DanseFestival Barents through Stellaris DansTeater. We "write" with our body into the earth or sky the name of someone who is meaningful to us who has passed. Those passing spirits evoked in the lights are dancing with us.
