In 2008, an old dream of the United Nations finally saw the light: on the island of Svalbard, one of the safest and most peaceful places in the world, a large warehouse was built 120 meters inside a mountain. In the middle of the "permafrost", a thick layer of soil that never melts, the Global Seed Vault was established. Since its opening eight years ago, 840.000 samples of seeds have been deposited in the vault. The seed is a source of life, the beginning of everything, and the Vault (also known as the "Doomsday Vault") represents the need to protect it at all costs. As long as there are seeds, there is hope; everything that die, could blossom once again. These "frozen songs" resting in the depth of a mountain close to the North Pole, could one day save the world. This scenario is the foundation of choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen's performance Frozen Songs. Choreography and artistic direction: Ina Christel Johannessen Multimedia: Feng Jiangzhou og Zhang Lin, Sifenlv New Media Music: Frederik Meulyzer og Koenraad Ecker, Stray Dogs Tekst: Oda Fiskum The performance is part of the 2017 CODA Oslo International Dance Festival.
