WALKING PERFORMANCE AT ODDERØYA
Ravnedans in collaboration with the artist collective NORDLYS (DK) created a guided walking performance for Odderøya. The performance was a collaboration with NORDLYS, which curated the performance and created an artistic meeting between the walk and the different performances. They have specialized in making walking performances since 2014, with a distinctive style that carries magic and rituals. The audience experienced Odderøya in a new way through different artistic works and the guided walk.
