In late 2010 the Berlin based media artist duo Springer Parker invited Neon’s Adrienne Hart to choreograph their contemporary dance opera ‘‘There Are Places In Our Heads One Can Travel To’’.

 

About the There are places in Our Heads One can travel to

Since 2008 Springer Parker have been travelling around the region of Finnmark in a motor caravan. During several artistic explorations they have been observing the region, while collecting images, sounds and stories for their archives – memories that are now transformed into a Contemporary Dance Opera about the landscape, the environment and the people.

‘‘There Are Places In Our Heads One Can Travel To’’ premiered in Kirkenes, Norway as part of the Barents Spektakel festival on the 5th February 2011.
