A Human of Oslo is a story about what to do when you don't know what to do. And it's a strory followed by improvised music by pianist Bugge Wesseltoft.
Iffit Qureshi was a social commentator and wrote a lot of articles about racism and integration until 22 July 2011. After this day, she lost the faith in her own writings, and instead she started to contact strangers in the streets of Oslo, interview them and take photos for the Facebook page/blog Humans of Oslo. The book Oslofolk ('Oslo people') grew out of her efforts, as did several exhibitions.
In her story A Human of Oslo, she shows some of the images and talks about what these meetings did to her.
The performance is part of the 2019 Oslo International Storytelling Festival, and is performed in English.
