Songs of a melting iceberg

NORDWIND in Berlin from 7th of November 2017 until 13th of January 2018 and at the Kampnagel in Hamburg, 4th-18th December 2017

Songs of a melting iceberg – Displaced without moving will also take place from the 4th to the 18th of December at the Kampnagel in Hamburg. With artists from the arctic region and Nordic countries, as well as from the African continent, NORDWIND will present an interdisciplinary programme in cooperation with Kampnagel, which will switch between dance, performance and visual art including the following. The Norwegian national company for contemporary dance Carte Blanche will develop a dance piece in collaboration with the Moroccan choreographer Bouchra Ouizguen. Laurent Chétouane will work in cooperation with the Swedish dancer Mikael Marklund and cast a contemporary look at central questions about authentic and autonomous sens of identity in turbulent times and the reflection and examination of one’s own self in the other. The South African performer Athi-Patra Ruga and the Canadian musician Tanya Tagaq will also present a performance together. Tagaq was the recipient of the Polar Prize in 2015. In their collaborative piece, Qudus Onikeku from Nigeria and Arnbjörg María Danielsen from Iceland explore new forms of resistance and open community. The dancer and choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly from Burkina Faso will continue his cooperation with Kampnagel and, after having presented his energetic dance piece ‘Kalakuta Republik’ at the international summer festival, will perform his piece ‘Nuit blanche à Ouagadougou’ at NORDWIND. We look forward to an inspiring and exciting visit to the festival with you in Hamburg too at Kampnagel.
