On 21 and 22 August, Panta Rei Dance Theatre and Dansens Hus invite you to promenade performances through the Gamle Oslo (Old Oslo) district. The journey starts at the Intercultural Museum at Grønland, moves down to Vaterland, where rowing boats will be waiting to take you through the tunnel, and out into the fjord. During the promenade, the audience will experience numerous short moments of dance art. The journey will not end until we can see Hovedøya island right in front of us!
Dancing on the Oslo Fjord is Panta Rei’s new venture, in which we make the fjord our stage in a series of dance promenades. Six young, professional dancers from the TILT Grow talent programme each present a solo that they themselves have created in collaboration with acclaimed Norwegian choreographers: Hege Haagenrud, Mia Habib, Yaniv Cohen, Sudesh Adhana, Melissa Hough and Inés Belli. The solos have been developed in partnership with the dancers Karianne Andreassen, Sarjo Sankareh, Martine Bentsen, Victor Amel Olivares Pedersen, Lou Ditaranto and Iannes Bryulant.
The Gamle Oslo district presents a wonderful diversity of people and urban spaces. In partnership with the stage designer Liam Monzer Alzafari, we turn the heart of Gamle Oslo and the fjord into our stage. The aim of the production is to highlight and showcase the district’s unique qualities, contexts and contrasts. The journey through the district gives the audience a chance to join in and get to know local talents.
Panta Rei Dance Theatre is an Oslo-based dance company established in 2000. Since then, the company has created 16 productions and led many more dance projects. The company is leading both Dancing on the Oslo Fjord and the extensive TILT project, which includes the TILT Grow talent programme.
Start point: Intercultural Museum, Tøyenbekken 5. End point is Sørenga Seawater Pool.
Tickets: During parts of the production, the audience will be sitting in boats, rowed by the Akerselva Wooden Boat Association. You can choose between tickets for 2 or 3 people, and the name of ‘your’ boat is shown on your ticket.
Remember: Bring an extra sweater and sensible footwear, check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. We would prefer you not to use umbrellas out of consideration for your fellow audience members.
NB! For parts of the production, the audience will be transported in rowing boats through a tunnel. We have good safety procedures in place, and every passenger will be given a lifejacket.
Important information about infection control measures: Infection control is our top priority, and we organise the promenade with this in mind. The promenade will therefore be divided into cohorts and led by a guide. It is important for the audience to arrive at the specified time and report to a member of staff. As members of the audience, you must always observe social distancing and keep one metre between you and anyone who is not in your household, and wear face masks if it is not possible to maintain a distance.
Filming and photography: We will be photographing and videoing the promenade and boat tour.
