Polar Night

> Continue to more recent data of this production

In the winter of 2014 five artists withdrew from the city into the most northerly region of Europe, where it is dark day and night. From this experience the creators have distilled a multidisciplinary production.

Under the new TRANSLAB-label Muziektheater Transparant offers development and growth opportunities for young singers and instrumentalists. Transparant wants to focus more than ever on young people as stage artists finding their way in the world of opera and musical theatre. Projects by young creators or companies just starting out will be given a place to rehearse and to develop with Transparant as a sounding board during their quest.

The island Sørøya is situated in the most northerly region of Europe, far beyond the Arctic Circle. Each winter the ‘polar night’ dissolves the distinction between day and night. For weeks on end the sun does not rise and the enduring darkness leads to depression and boredom. Five artists withdrew during the winter of 2014 from a world obsessed by time and efficiency into this desolate area. They examined our desire for more time and fewer impulses in a disorientating environment dominated by snow and darkness. In the midst of the city they invite the audience to an artificial landscape and slowly immerse them in an astonishing experience. ‘Polar Night’ is an audiovisual performance about ‘the night without end’.
