In MELP you are welcomed in an unrefined universe where games of construction and deconstruction of the body are taking place.
A tribe tries to reconcile themselves with the passing of time, while going through rituals and cycles of an underworld.
The performance is a collection of choreographed moments and images that portrays the different transitions in life.
MELP premiered at Bærum Kunsthall, Oslo, in August 2017.
Project supported by Art Council Norway, Oppland Fylkeskommune, Glasslaven Kunstsenter and Bærum Kunsthall, Oslo
