Ocean Antics

‘Ocean Antics’ is a family performance by Solveig Leinan-Hermo takes a playful and inventive look at the relationship between the sea and the sea as a resource that is home to countless organisms. A tension-filled battle emerges when humans look for profit and threaten the existence on the seabed. It’s a stand off between nature and capitalism viewed through a visual universe inspired by mythology, the ocean life and those who make their living from the sea. We welcome all ages to come share this dreamlike dance experience.

On stage, the audience meet dancers Gerd Kaisa Vorren, Ekaterina Nikitina and Tonje Aas Molnes, as well and Halvdan Nedrejord, Anna Karpova and Solveig Leinan-Hermo. Together with set designer Hilde Skancke Pedersen and lighting designer Niels A. W. Jensen they create a fairytale environment with playful movement and dancing, colours and tones.


Stellaris DansTeater will again tour the family performance ‘Ocean Antics’. First schools in Finnmark in collaboration with the Cultural Rucksack / Scene Finnmark. Then we head over to our Russian friends in Murmansk region in collaboration with The county's Cultural Palace named after S.M. Kirov.
