Whispers - by The Pearly Gates


Stellaris DansTeater has had the pleasure to bring together this particular cast of people from different professional fields within the Barents Region for 'Whispers – by The Pearly Gates’.

This performance originated from the choreographer’s meeting with Alzheimer's, where she has marvelled on the complexity of the brain with different character changes happening and where situations shifts like a light switch between real reality and an inner reality of time and place. Thematically 'Whispers - by The Pearly Gates' is based on the "I" as a main character, presented in a film shown alongside dance on stage. The "I" has a split personality, which consists of several characters. They communicate with each other in a landscape seemingly real for each of them. Not everything is as they believe, or the way they want the world to be.

Together with other elements on stage the performers take the audience on a journey into the imagination where a battle between the characters may have unknown consequences.
