“The whole thing is so masterly done, and I don’t remember if there was breathing during the whole performance, I just remember that something took strongly hold of my heart and kept me tight...” Helle Østvik, Finnmark Dagblad.
In 2003, Haugen Productions made Sisters. This performance was shown 180 times and seen by more than 25,000 audiences of all ages throughout Norway. Sisters 11 Years Later is the independent follow up in the story of close family and sisterhood. Now, eleven years later, the sisters Liv Hanne and Anne Katrine are still dancing; they ask themselves and their five remaining aunts: how is life now? What has the meeting with death – the loss of a mother and a sister – done with them? A wish to once more take a close look into family structures, now with focus on aging, loss and death as a natural part of a life, is the motivation behind the personal story. The performance includes mediums of cinematography, installation art, music, text, dance.
This performance is part of the NB dance loop touring network tour 2016-17
