“Meetings” is an impressive performance with 4 Norwegian traditional Halling dancers and 4 Chinese Kung Fu monks. Shortlisted at Prix Italia 2013!

“Meetings” is an impressive performance with 4 Norwegian traditional Halling dancers and 4 Chinese Kung Fu monks. The Kung Fu monks do not speak English and the Norwegian dancers do not understand Chinese, but together they have created a story under simple conditions with no interpreter. Particular moments, moving compassion and childlike play are combined with the art of movement from two totally different, but strong traditions.

The Jury of Prix Italia 2013 wrote: An original idea of crossing the borders of culture and language through music and dance. A model to follow and develop.
