Book launch

Unique scenic have events take place in and connected to northern landscapes. 11 years after the seminar The Archipelagic and Scenic Landscapes, which themed the relationship between concrete, metaphorical and scenic landscapes here at the festival, and six years after the theater event Lulleli for Fruholmen lighthouse on Ingøy in Finnmark – the book Landscape Theater and the North – Lullelic Reflections is finally here. The editors Tormod Carlsen and Knut Ove Arntzen will hold an informal launch of the book at the festival where several of the thoughts and connections between the northern island landscapes and landscape understandings in the performing arts were first articulated.

The book is published by Orkana publishing house and is based on the performance Lulleli for Fruholmen Fyr in 2016 and the thoughts that led to it. But in addition to documenting this event, the goal has been to inspire and highlight different ideas about how the landscape concretely and metaphorically affects the performing arts. It consists of a collection of essays by Arnd Wesemann, Helena Varopoulou, Hans-Thies Lehmann, Knut Ove Arntzen, Gulli Kristina Sekse and Ine Therese Berg. Artistic reflections by Zuzanna Skiba and Dan Mihaltianu, as well as documentation of the performance by the Norwegian Landscape Theater.

We will present the book, give a small introduction to ‘landscape thinking’ in the performing arts and maybe we will come up with something more. A book will be launched! Welcome.
