Commissioned by Trondheim Symphony Orchestra
A new symphony in two acts with dance celebrate Trondheim’s 1000 years anniversary.
The inspiration flow from the river, the fire, the building of a modern town and the architecture and design of the Nidaros Cathedral. Dance sections evolve around sports events, social life as well as the madness of the middleages in un - chronological order. The landscape and historical incidents identifying Trondheim as a cultivated town are joined in a string of movement, colour and composed stage settings.
