Twelve dancers and nine musicians takes the Opera roof!

The dance company Nagelhus Schia Productions visits the ceiling of the Opera House with the masterpiece "In C" by the renowned choreographer Sasha Waltz.

"In C" is based on the piece of music of the same name, composed by Terry Riley in 1964. Riley's masterpiece is an open composition, revolutionary in its time, and considered to be the first piece of minimalist music.

The composer himself called "In C" a democratic piece of music because it gives great freedom to the individual musicians in the ensemble. Sasha Waltz has transferred the same concept to dance, and has created 53 movement phrases for use in a structured improvisation with clear rules.

Here, Waltz asks questions that touch on basic democratic principles: How to enjoy one's freedom and at the same time take into account others in society? How to follow others and at the same time give room for new impulses? How to lead and be led at the same time?
