Tormod Carlsen's site-specific installations have been regular additions to our festivals since he and Heidi Dalene presented A Strange Kind of Love in 2014, an interactive installation questioning surveillance society. Radio B-town is the Bergen version of this traveling local radio and peeping club. It consists of a reception, a miniature amphitheatre, bar and radio studio. The scenery on the outside then becomes the stage.
The audience is invited to enter at dusk and upon arrival they are given warm blankets, wool socks, popcorn, and a drink. A live radio broadcast starts in a studio located behind the audience and the landscape outside slowly comes to life through small interventions and staged situations created in collaboration with local artists and residents.
Bergen is a town full of contrast, from the feeling of being enclosed by mountains downtown, to the overwhelming freedom felt when standing on the top of Mount Fløyen looking out. From the rats underground to the spectacular buildings above them. The old Hansa houses and visiting tourists, and the university filling the town with youth.
Radio B-town is an homage to the location, the view and the experience of landscape. A scenic poem about enjoying the view and reflecting on one's surroundings.
