Jill sigman/thinkdance / Kristin Norderval & Amund Sveen (USA/NO)

NordervalSigmanSveen and Storsveen with special guests, make themselves “at home” at the Norwegian Opera House foyer with a durational performance-installation that mixes dance, new music, visual installation, and live art. Their performance squat revolves around Hut #6, a temporary structure built of found materials and plants. Through activities like dancing, planting, and serving tea, they explore the concept of being “at home” and ask what home will be like when we have less energy and more trash. The Hut continues Sigman and Norderval’s past collaborations with portable performance and green energy.

Jill Sigman is a choreographer and multimedia artist based in NYC. Trained in classical dance at the Joffrey Ballet, her work has come to exist at the intersection of dance, theater, and visual art. Equally at home on a proscenium stage as she is crawling in the dirt or dancing in a tree, Sigman uses the body to raise questions about self and society. Hut #6 is part of her ongoing Hut Project, a series of site-specific huts raising questions about sustainability and real estate. She founded jill sigman/thinkdance in 1998.

Kristin Norderval is a composer and singer who specializes in developing new works for voice, small scale opera, cross-disciplinary work, and works with interactive technology. Commissions have included works for Den Anden Opera in Copenhagen, the Bucharest International Dance Festival, and the Parthenia Viol Consort. Norderval’’s credits as a soloist include performances with the Oslo Sinfonietta, Philip Glass Ensemble, Netherlands Dance Theater, and the San Francisco Symphony. Recordings are available on Aurora, CRI, Deep Listening, Eurydice, New World, Nonesuch and Koch International.
