WE INSIST Nord
Sound artist and noise musician Jassem Hindi (FR) and the dancers Rani Nair (SE) and Mia Habib (NO) went on a tour of the Nordic region, with a performance about identity and mobility.
We are proud to have contributed to the realization of WE INSIST in the Nordic region. After the traces and experiences through the realization of the initial WE INSIST project, WE INSIST Nord will explore the possibilities created in meetings within a limited region: the Norwegian and the Nordic cultures in the periphery of the globe; with scarce population over large areas, cultures that every day, due to the increased diversity of the population, debate the constantly changing individual, group and national identity.
WE INSIST Nord will contribute to the evolution of performing arts in the Nordic region, to the debate of our identity and to the curiosity in human and artistic meetings in our scarcely populated regions of the North.
A publication that describes some of the experiences from WE INSIST, and the process towards WE INSIST Nord, is available for download.
