We are delighted to announce the premiere performance of VÅR: the story of Hervor will be at this year’s Beyond The Border International Storytelling Festival as part of their Online Festival on Tuesday 6 July, 8pm – you can book your tickets here.
Broadcast live from a beautiful laftehus in a Norwegian forest, this one-hour live, online performance is part of a two-hour immersive storytelling experience including a prologue, epilogue and informal ‘foyer’ session.
From the quest for cursed sword buried deep within the earth, to waiting on a platform in Paris, being watched by a stranger… VÅR blends the ancient Norse saga of Hervor with autobiography, oral storytelling and electroacoustic music, in a captivating exploration of memory, loss, power, war and identity.
Shining a light on an almost forgotten story of a Viking warrior woman, VÅR is created and performed by two outstanding Norwegian artists – storyteller, Mimesis Heidi Dahlsveen and composer and musician, Kristin Bolstad.
Discover a space where ancient and contemporary stories interlace, filled with striking original music, and be part of a brand new online storytelling experience.
