Soldiers coming home. Not to their family and everyday life, but to the forests. After facing war on the very edge of civilisation, they retreat to nature … to the wilderness.
Based on interviews with returning soldiers and their family members Nature Wild unfolds as a hybrid of documentary video set design, electronic beats, opera, indie, dance and performance art … The body’s own sound in between breaking branches. Join us when the struggle to return home takes a detour in the human mind and a trip into the wild.
Nature Wild is based on real stories … for a year the performance artist Tine Louise Kortermand has been travelling around in Denmark interviewing returning soldiers and their family members.
Based on these interviews contra tenor Daniel Carlsson (S), dancer Taneli Torma (FI), electronic musician Aku Raski (FI) and video- sound- and performance artist Tine Louise Kortermand (DK) creates the music dramatic performance, telling about solidarity, about feeling alienated from the closest relatives, to live in parallel worlds and to sink into the dark – and rise to the surface again.
Nature Wild is a co-production between Nordic Performance Art, DEFINE festival and The Funen Opera. First performance will be at The Funen Opera in Odense 2016/2017. And after that Nature Wild will go on a small tour amongs others to
DEFINE festival at Sønderborg Teatre on 10 november 2017.
