Lunch / Hádegisverđur is a performance devised collaboratively by an international group of 8 artists in the small village of Kaukonen, Finnish Lapland, in Silence Residency. It was premiered in Tjarnarbíó, Reykjavík, on the 25th of October 2019.
Lunch / Hádegisverður is created with an experimental and non-hierarchical method. This art project emphasizes the importance of the encounter. The performance emerges from the interplay of light, sound, movement, and of course – food. It is a response to both the place in which it was created and the place where it will be shared – the site of a new encounter.
The artists in the performance are Erlend Auestad Danielsen (NO), Sophie Fetokaki (CY), Anni-Kristiina Juuso (Sápmi), Mari Keski-Korsu (FIN), Emma Langmoen (NO), Júlía Mogensen (IS) Riikka Vuorenmaa (FIN) and Jacob Zimmer (CAN / WHITEHORSE).
The project was organised by Northern Network for Performing Arts that is a network of artists, organisations, festivals and communities working in the field of performing art in the High North region in the Nordic countries. Thank you to Jonna Leppänen, Joonas Martikainen, Katariina Imporanta and Maarit Utriainen from the Silence.
And the amazing, beautiful fellow artists!
