Performances, interventions and sound.
Bodø, Norway.
Varied materials.

In this interdisciplinary and site-specific project artist Aleksander Johan Andreassen’s and choreographer Maria Landmark’s work is informed by the recent years’ dramatic urban development of the town of Bodø in Northern Norway. During a month long artistic intervention in central Bodø, and by setting up a base in a vacant shopping space, the artists maintained a direct dialogue with the city and its inhabitants. Collaborating with dancers Oda Bjørholm and Alma Bø, as well as scenographer Mari Lotherington, the group arranged conversations and interviews with the town’s inhabitants, and also unannounced and announced performances in central spaces and streets of Bodø. The work was commissioned by the interdisciplinary art festival Bodø Biennale 2018. Headlined performances were presented during the festival weekend in September 2018.
