6–8 September, Norwegian Opera & Ballet: An intriguing new music-based theatre work
The road is just a surface is a music-based theatre work which explores the experience of being trapped in an emotionally locked life situation and the longing for moving on.
Anja Garbarek is one of Norway’s most interesting artists, and has since her debut in 1992 been provoking the musical tension between art and pop, with her visual and theatrical expression and uncommon richness of detail. She gained international acclaim for her albums ”Balloon Mood” (1996) and ”Smiling & Waving” (2001). Her musical universe has been described as profoundly visual.
Now she is launching brand new material for the first time since 2005, and, together with choreographer and director Jo Strømgren, she is developing this work of musical theatre, combining her iconic sound landscape with video material, choreography and text.
Performing on stage are Anja Garbarek herself, violist Bergmund Waal Skaslien and dancer Line Tørmoen.
